After municipal type and community names have been selected, the work will begin on the 2023 budget for the new entity. This year's process will be new to all as we consolidate the Town and LSD budgets. Planning by the Province and Town has been underway for some time.

Facilitators for the regions will be introduced to the new process on April 8, and then on May 2 and 3 there will be in-depth sessions delivered to the facilitators. After that, work on the local budget will begin in earnest.

The new municipality will be broken down into budgeting sub-units based on the services received. These sub-units will be a tool that enables the use of multiple tax rates in a single entity. Our Transition Committee looks forward to this process and the budget will help answer the question, "What will this do to my taxes?"
