2024 BUDGETS DRAFT 1: Administration presented Draft 1 of the 2024 Operating and Capital Budgets to Council during the meeting. The first draft of the Operating Budget has a deficit of $1,748,472, which will need to be balanced in order to conform to the Municipal Government Act (MGA) prior to final passage.

The Capital Budget has a deficit of $24,330,201. To aid in balancing the Capital Budget, administration recommended deferring or scaling back a number of projects. Some of those projects include traffic lights installation for $300,000, $100,000 for a wastewater treatment master plan, future library expansion for $1,500,000, and more.
