The City of Kelowna’s proposed 2017 annual budget will be presented to Council later this month.

City Council will receive a staff presentation of the 2017 Financial Plan at its regular meeting Dec. 12, and will deliberate requests for budget during an all-day session Dec. 15. The final tax rate will be set in April 2017, after City Council reviews final budget requests.

“Anyone who is interested in what the City of Kelowna is up to, what we are investing in and how that will impact activities in the New Year, is invited to learn about the budget online, stay updated by signing up for e-updates and following us on Twitter,” says Financial Planning Manager George King. “The City of Kelowna is committed to a transparent budget process and keeping residents informed about the decisions that affect our community.”

Municipal budgeting can be a difficult subject to explain and understand. A comprehensive set of webpages devoted to breaking things down and explaining the budget as simply as possible (even through a short animated video) is updated every year and available online.

For information about the annual budget process, to watch the budget video, subscribe to receive e-updates, and to explore where the money comes from and where it goes, visit the City of Kelowna website's budget page. And on budget deliberation day, Dec. 15, follow along on Twitter with the hashtag #KelownaBudget.
