As the City prepares the 2024 budget, it faces many of the same challenges that local businesses and members of the community are facing. A core principle behind the development of the City’s budgets is to determine the associated costs that are necessary to deliver on the Council-approved service levels. Added to the overall challenge in this post-pandemic period are supply chain challenges, inflation and interest rate increases, and, in some cases, product scarcity, particularly in construction materials.

Coming into the financial planning period, it is evident that several conditions remain from the past three years that are continuing to impact City’s operations and financial predictability. As with the past three financial years, the City must once again make appropriate adjustments along with financial assumptions in preparing its 2024 budgets and 2024–2028 Five-Year Financial Plan.

Public input on these business cases will be collected until 11:59 pm Tuesday, February 27 and Council will receive an engagement report before deciding to include any of the supplemental items in the budget.
