County of Stettler Council passed the 2019-2021 Budget on Wednesday, January 9 at their regular council meeting. The 2019-2021 budget process was carried out in four stages.
Going forward this budget provides that the County can continue to maintain our existing level of service and continue to capitalize on grant monies as they become available.
Council will not confirm the tax rate until May, upon receipt of 2018 assessment numbers.
In 2018 Council identified a need to strategically address rural crime in our region. A committee was formed, and under Council’s direction a third full time Bylaw Officer was hired.
The annual compilation of our budget is an exercise in surveying our community’s needs, looking at the Strategic Plan areas identified by Council, and making a report card of the progress made the year prior and the direction given going forward. The budget process helps us to identify and consider what citizens value most in our County, and examine how we can continue maintaining those services and service areas.
