What We Heard Report 

Thank you for participating in the Budget 2022 online survey!

About the Survey

Town residents and businesses were invited to provide input on the 2022 Municipal Budget through an online survey that launched June 1 and closed June 20, which will be the first budget approved by the new Council elected in October.

Administration and Council want to thank those who took the opportunity to complete the Budget 2022 survey. Community involvement is a priority for the Town of Okotoks and survey responses will help to shape the 2022 Budget so that it is able to support economic recovery while also meeting the community’s needs.

Information collected from this survey will help to inform Council to build the budget based on what the community values most. This survey identifies how public opinion and values are trending over time.

 

Town Council’s strategic direction and priorities establish the guidelines for the initial steps in preparing the operating and capital budgets. In developing the budget, the Town also follows approved financial policies, which ensures a consistent approach and adoption across the Town’s business centres, while aligning with Council’s fiscal direction.

The budget is established with a strong understanding of its impacts on future years and the ability to fund future projects and initiatives. This supports the Town’s commitment to being fiscally responsible. The Town of Okotoks’ budget is divided into two categories: Municipal and Utility. These are further subdivided into the operating and capital budgets as illustrated below:
