What comprises the municipal budget?

The General Operating Fund is funded by taxation, and covers the operational expenses of the District, such as protective services, transportation, recreation and community development among others.

The Capital Plan defines where the District will invest for the long term on infrastructure, equipment and facilities.

The three Utilities (Water, Sewer and Solid Waste) are funded by utility fees (separate from property taxes), and address operational and capital expenses for each area.
