The 2018 budget process is underway. The budget process was adjusted to allow newly-elected officials to hold a strategic planning session to set their priorities for the next four years prior to adopting the 2018 Budget. 

Budget Workshop

This year, the budget workshops are scheduled to take place over two days in January. The budget workshop provides elected officials an opportunity to ask questions and seek clarity about the budget. Residents are invited to attend to observe the meeting.

Council Chambers
5600 49 Street
Friday, January 19, starting at 5 pm
Saturday, January 20 starting at 8 am

Budget Open Houses

The budget open houses are your opportunity to view the proposed budgets and ask questions or get more details. The budget open houses will detail the initiatives and projects Beaumont plans to undertake in 2018. The tentative dates for the budget open houses are: 

Aqua-Fit Lobby
Monday, January 29, 2018
5 to 7 pm

Ken Nichol Regional Recreation Centre Lobby
Wednesday, January 31, 2018
5 to 7 pm 

A summary of residents' comments from the budget open houses will be presented at the February 13, 2018 Council meeting, along with recommendations for the Proposed Schedule of Fees and Charges, as well as the Operating, Capital and Utility budgets. At that time Council may adopt the budgets, adjust and adopt, or defer the process to a subsequent meeting of Council.

As always, please contact your elected officials or Town staff should you need additional information. For details, contact Alan Harris at 780-929-1358 or by email.
