The 2012 to 2016 draft Financial Plan went to the Finance and Audit Committee meeting on February 27, marking the start of public budget deliberations.
The next step in the process is to bring forward updates to the 2012 to 2016 draft Financial Plan to the Finance and Audit Committee meeting on Tuesday, March 6 at 6:00 p.m. This meeting is also open to the public.
On Monday, March 12 at 7:00 p.m. the Council of the City of White Rock will hold a special meeting in City Hall Council Chambers (15322 Buena Vista Avenue) for the purpose of hearing comments from the public regarding the 2012 to 2016 Financial Plan.
After considering all comments and feedback from the public meeting, adjustments may or may not be made to the budget, which will then go forward to a regular Council meeting in the form of a bylaw for approval. It must pass three readings before it is adopted as the 2012 to 2016 Financial Plan Bylaw.
The Financial Plan process is an important process that drives the City's priorities and initiatives. It is also the place to find out how your tax dollars will be spent.
