The Finance Department:
- Manages municipal taxation and all aspects of Township accounting services, including accounts payable and receivable, payroll, financial reporting, asset management and budgeting
- Distributes finance and taxation information to Council and the general public and is responsible for reporting financial benchmarks and performance measurements
The Operating Budget is the plan for the day-to-day operations in the Township including salaries and wages, mileage and travel, contracted services, materials and supplies, repairs and maintenance, minor capital items and a variety of other expenses. The operating budget is funded by tax dollars, user fees and some provincial funding
The Capital Budget is the annual forecast for financing capital projects and purchases including land, land improvements, buildings, building improvements, equipment, computer hardware and software, vehicles and roads.
It is the goal of the Township while budgeting to have a responsible financial plan that will accommodate the future replacement of all Township assets.
