Committee of the Whole Update – April 2, 2024

This week at the Committee of the Whole, Council received a report detailing the timelines and process for the 2025 budget. Yes, you heard that right, the 2025 budget. Despite just adopting the 2024 budget in December 2023, our ongoing commitment to fiscal responsibility means continuous work on future budgets. With the new provincial legislation requiring Mayors to provide budget presentations to Council and the community, collaboration remains crucial for a successful budget development process.

I’ve encouraged Council members to bring forward potential additions to the budgets, specific to their respective wards. Planning ahead ensures the upcoming budget aligns with our residents’ needs. I’ve asked Ward Councillors to reflect on initiatives, projects, or improvements that could benefit their respective wards and to schedule one-on-one meetings in May for in-depth discussions. This collaborative approach will allow us to prioritize initiatives for inclusion in the 2025 budget, reflecting our community’s diverse needs and aspirations. Starting this process early and allowing ample time for discussion ensures a budget that truly serves our community. I am looking forward to working with each councillor to address the needs of our community. #LeadershipThatGetsThingsDone
