  • Four Year Strategic Priorities
    This document includes a summary of each of Council’s 7 Key themes identified as focus areas for 2015-2018. Administration has used these priorities as guidance when developing New Service Level Requests and New Capital Projects.
  • 100 Year Reserve Plan
    In 2014 Council approved  a plan intended to close the Town’s infrastructure deficit gap over the next 10 years based on a 100 year capital replacement plan. There were 9 of the major capital reserves included in the analysis and this document provides an updated summary of the 10 year capital reserve forecast versus the forecasted balances projected for the next 10 years in the 100 year plan. 
  • 2016 – 2018 Operating Budget Tracker  (updated December 2, 2015)
    This document shows the starting point from which the three year operating budget will be built. It includes guidance from the Financial Plan in terms of overall tax increases, previously approved funding for new service level increases and assumptions for growth in the School and Bow Valley Regional Housing Levies and new assessment growth. Please note that within the parameters set out in the Financial Plan there is room for an additional occupation of $175,041 in 2016. 
  • List of New Service Level Requests  
    This document is a list of all New Service Level Requests that are being presented for Council to consider in the 2016-2018 operating budget. It includes a column for one-time implementation costs as well as ongoing costs. Complete descriptions of the New Service Level Requests can be found within the appropriate Service Area document.

  • 2016 – 2025 Capital Budget Project Listing – By Reserve  
    The first section of this document shows all of the capital projects previously approved by Council for the next 10 years listed by the capital reserve that will fund the project. In some cases there have been changes made either to the year or the amount from what was approved last year. These changes have been made either by subsequent direction from Council or as a result of new information coming forward in the meantime, for example more up to date cost estimates.

    The second section of this document shows a complete list of New Capital Projects and projects where there are significant scope changes for Council to consider. The last two rows show the total capital reserve balance forecasted at the end of each year including only those projects that have been approved and a forecast of the reserve balances should every project be approve              

  • 2015 - 2025 Capital Reserves
    This document is a comprehensive forecast showing the funding flowing into and out of each of the capital reserves for each of the next 10 years with a summary at the end.  Assumptions and estimates have been used to forecast capital grant funding, operating transfers to the various reserves and other capital revenue and debt servicing.  Only approved capital projects have been included in this forecast.

  • Internal Chargeback Reference Sheet  
    Over the past year there have been two significant organizational restructures; one in the Operations division and one in the Community Services division. As a result of these restructures and some other major shifts in cost allocations between service areas, there have been some major shifts in the internal chargebacks for Grounds, Facilities, Operations Admin and Fleet services. This document summarizes these shifts between service areas. Please note that these internal chargebacks and recoveries are simply a way to better understand the true cost of providing each individual service, they are often based on estimates and assumptions that change over time and they always net out to zero across the organization with no real cash cost.
