Budget 2018 Information

Budget 2018

The Village of Stirling 2018 Interim Operating Budget was approved on November 29, 2017.

The budget maintains service levels and invests in maintaining Village infrastructure to prepare for our bright future.  The Interim Operating Budget calls for a tax increase of about 1%, while supporting municipal operating needs.  The Final Operational Budget and the Municipal Tax Rate will be set in the Spring of 2018.  This usually takes place in April after the Provincial Budget is passed and Provincial transfer amounts are set.

How is the budget set?

The Village budget is set annually by Council.  Administration presents the budget to Council in the fall, which includes all programs and services provided to Village residents.  The municipal budget consists of an operating budget and a capital budget, and includes recommended funding sources.

  • The operating budget provides for ongoing services that residents enjoy every day such as snow clearing and grass cutting.  It also provides funding for the swimming pool and Settler Days
  • The capital budget provides for the replacement of essential infrastructure and equipment necessary for support of municipal services.

The budget represents the resources required to provide services to residents and determines the taxes required from residents.  The budget is the process from which Council provides direction to Administration as to the services provided.  It allows Council’s vision for the Village to be implemented through actions that are reflected in the budget.
