The proposed 2019 City Budget was presented to City Council on Aug 6. The proposed city budget is built on a strategic framework to meet the desired level of services by the community, invest in city infrastructure and build financial sustainability for the future.

The proposed 2019 Budget does not anticipate any new tax increase.
