The proposed 2019-2022 Budget was tabled at Regional Council on January 31 and included an overview of the $3.2 billion 2019 budget, comprised of $2.3 billion for operating costs and $867 million for capital investments – which is part of a 10-year, $6.6 billion capital plan. The proposed budget includes a tax levy increase of 3.37 per cent or approximately $81 per household, for 2019.

A tax levy increase of 2.96 per cent is proposed in 2020, 2021 and 2022.

Council was also presented for its consideration a one per cent Infrastructure Acceleration Option to expedite roads projects already identified in the 10-year capital plan. The additional one per cent would bring the tax levy total to 4.37 per cent, or approximately $105 per household, for 2019. The option could help advance road widenings in congested areas.
