Your City Budget

The City's annual budget looks to adapt to change and balance competing priorities, while continuing to provide high-quality services our citizens have come to expect.

Every year, Council sets service levels and allocates funding to:

  • deliver the City’s 200+ programs and services
  • invest in infrastructure upgrades
  • achieve the actions in the City’s Strategic Plan

Draft 2020 Financial Plan
