The Finance Department is responsible for the budget process, including the Current and Capital Budgets.
The Current Budget provides for the costs for the City to provide municipal services to its inhabitants, and forms the basis of the amounts to be raised through taxation and user charges.
The Capital Budget provides for the construction and acquisition of capital works. A capital expenditure may be defined as any significant expenditure to acquire or improve land, building, engineering structures, machinery and equipment. The Capital Budget represents the municipality's intention to proceed with certain programs of capital works and services. The Capital Budget also establishes which projects debt will be issued.
The Sewer Area Budget provides for the costs for the City to operate and maintain the municipal sanitary sewage system and the sewage treatment plant. Such costs are to be recovered by charging a sewer charge based on the amount of the water consumption charges for water users that have access to the municipality's sanitary sewer system.
The Water Budget provides for the costs for the City to operate and maintain the water distribution system in order that the water acquired through the Lambton Area Water Supply System (LAWSS) is provided to municipal ratepayers.
Please note that the Approved Budget book includes Current, Water, Sewer & Capital Budgets.
