In December of each year, Sturgeon County Council approves an Operating and Capital Budget. The County uses a multi-year Capital Budget plan to help guide forecasting and procurement needs. The Operating Budget is approved annually, and it accounts for the day-to-day operations of the municipality.
In April or May, the County’s tax rate bylaw is approved. It includes the provincial requisitions for education and senior’s housing. The final budget, including these requisitions, determines the tax rates for the County.
The 2023 Budget focuses on financial sustainability while maintaining the services and programs that matter most to the community.
