The city’s planning for next year’s budget is underway. The City gathered feedback from the public in August and September 2022 to help identify priorities for the community. Thank you to everyone who completed the online budget simulation that put residents in councillors’ chairs and make decisions about spending and revenue.
Making a budget requires balancing many priorities, needs and desires, and residents often have different views on how we should do that. Alberta legislation prevents us from running a deficit, so an increase in one area could mean reducing spending in another, or increasing revenue, such as taxes or fees.
