Public Consultations / Meetings to Discuss 2024 Financial Plan
A Budget Information Session will be held on Thursday, March 14th from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM at the Gibraltar Room in the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex.
The public is invited to observe and encouraged to participate in the public consultation and budget meetings as City Council discusses the budget and financial plan for the new year.
The Council meets in August each year to discuss proposed budget and five year financial plan development timeline and to direct budget development steps and targets.
The preliminary budget (operating and capital), 5-year departmental financial plans and 10-year capital plan are presented for public consultation during Council meetings in October and November.
This year Mayor and Council, as well as City staff will be holding public budget information session in March to provide a review of City budget, answer budget-related questions and listen to and making note of feedback and ideas for current and future budget considerations.
Then the budget discussions continue to finalize the Financial Plan and Tax Rate Bylaws by May.
Budget documents discussed are presented on this web page (as they are developed). The budget and expenses for all City departments and divisions are presented as well as the City's capital plan. These documents would be periodically revised, as Council deliberates and makes budget decisions.
If you would like to to express your views or pose questions directly to City Council regarding the City's budget and financial plans, please attend one of the public budget consultation meetings or e-mail us a message, stating your name and Williams Lake address (anonymous comments or comments from non-residents will not be presented to Council).
