With Budget Deliberations in our rear-view, we have provided key information regarding how your taxes will be allocated. It was not easy. Some difficult decisions had to be made as we faced a significant budget gap in 2018 of $170 million. The gap was the result of one-time measures to balance the 2017 budget, reduced revenues in a number of areas and a need to bring our budget in line with a more modest growth forecast for Calgary while still maintaining the opportunity for investment.
Here is a high-level summary of Council’s decisions following several days of deliberations:
With Council’s decision, I believe we are well positioned to move forward with our service-based plans and budgets for the 2019-2022 business cycle. In fact, members of Council will spend Monday outlining their priorities and shaping their direction to Administration for the four-year term.
If you have any questions or comments, I welcome you to contact the Ward 13 Office.
