Delta is Seeking Feedback on Proposed 2017 Financial Plan!
Jan 11, 2017
The 2017 financial plan public consultation period has closed, and we are not collecting any responses at this time, but feel free to explore the tool as much as you wish.
Prior to Council setting the 2017 tax rates, The Corporation of Delta is seeking public feedback on the proposed 2017 Financial Plan, including the budget, funding priorities, municipal services and upcoming projects. View the 2017 Financial Plan.
The proposed 2017 budget strategy calls for a property tax increase of 2.75%, which will go towards:
- 0.5% to maintain city government services
- 0.25% for Police services
- 0.5% for the Drainage Program
- 1.5% for an Emergency Operations Centre, Fire Hall and Training Facility at Boundary Bay Airport
With our commitment to no new borrowing and pay as you go project funding, all tax dollars collected will be going to services for our community. We continue to stay on track for a debt-free Delta.
