Budget 2020

Each year, staff and Council determine how to balance the budget and ensure the minimal necessary tax increase while funding important maintenance work and new projects.

The Draft 2020 Budget has been designed to:

  • maintain quality services expected by citizens,
  • put aside funds for future requirements for aging infrastructure,
  • address priorities of Council, such as the Active Transportation Plan, sewer upgrades and climate action work,
  • account for inflation, and
  • invest in public safety (police and fire services).

Central Saanich, like other municipalities, offers a broad range of services but has limited revenue sources and must focus on long-term and prudent fiscal management.

Services Central Saanich provides: Legislative and Administrative Services, Finance, Policing, Fire Protection, Planning, Building Inspections, Bylaw Enforcement, Park Use, Communications and Engagement, Civil Engineering and Public Works Services including Roads, Drainage, Water, Sewer, and Parks maintenance.We're listening

After learning about the budget, please share your thoughts with us. All input received by February 1 will be provided to Council prior to the budget meetings. (For budget meetings, please see the Key Dates on the right of this page.)
