Service plans and budgets

The City is moving from department-based plans and budgets to service-based plans and budgets.

What are service plans and budgets?

Traditionally, City administration has presented plans and budgets based on our organizational structure: by department and business unit.

Service-based plans and budgets are presented by individual services (e.g. Street cleaning).

Benefits of a service-based approach

Moving to service-based plans and budgets will:  

  • Provide clarity on the value of City services received for tax dollars paid.
  • Make it easier for Council to assess a service and make more informed investment decisions.
  • Provide improved information on a service's value to enable better strategic decision-making.
