2016 Budget Process - Get Involved


Posted in the EaZyTalk Newsletter page on 03/21/2016 12:05:44 on Monday, March 21, 2016.

 

Township Council has started working on the 2016 Budget and Capital Forecast. Over the next several meetings, Council will be reviewing the budget documents and providing direction on priorities for expenditures.

The Budget process is a public one and Council encourages residents to provide their comments. The main opportunities for public participation in the budget include, speaking with a Councillor (contacts are on the back page), send in written comments (budget@ezt.ca), make an appointment to address Council at a regular meeting or attend the Public Budget Meeting. All budget documents are posted on the Township’s website and are available prior to Council meetings.

The budget approval will take place at the March 16th Council Meeting, at 7:45pm. This is an open meeting and all residents are encouraged to attend.

The Township does go beyond the minimum requirements for giving notice about the budget. The mandatory budget public meeting was removed from the Municipal Act many years ago; however, the Township has continued to     maintain this even though public attendance at the budget public meeting has been quite low. For further information, budget documents or any changes to the timeline, be sure to check the Township’s website at:  http://ezt.ca/budget 

Last year, $11,846,062 was raised through property taxes. 

· $4,358,800 was used for Township purposes

· $3,883,542 went to the County

· $2,603,720 went to School Boards
