Getting to Know the Town Budget

The Town of Coaldale's operating and capital budgets respond to our community's growth while ensuring secure service delivery to citizens and thoughtful planning for the future. The budgets prioritize what taxpayers value most — maintaining our community’s assets and continually investing in programs and the local economy. Under the Municipal Government Act (MGA), Council must pass a three year operating plan (2022-2024), and a five year capital plan (2022-2026) at the start of the Council term.

Here are some videos to help explain the budget process:
