2022 Proposed Capital and Operating Budget

Central to establishing Milton as a Place of Possibility are the investments made in infrastructure to support the municipal services provided to the public, as well as the funding to deliver services such as firefighting, snow clearing, maintenance of roads, and parks, transit, recreation, and library.

The Capital and Operating Budget provides for the investments to be made in the community and is a reflection of Council’s strategic vision for the Town as outlined in the Council-Staff Workplan. Detailed studies and planning exercises undertaken by the Town, including various fiscal impact analyses, master plans, condition assessments, the 2021 Development Charge Background Study and the Town’s Asset Management Plan are developed in line with the overall strategic vision. These plans and studies, which can be found through the Town of Milton Council Reports, form the framework for investment in the community.

The annual budget process provides an avenue to prioritize and balance the allocation of available resources to achieve the various priorities and ultimately deliver services to the community. The 2022 budget call report was presented to Council on Sept. 20, 2021. Through this report Council approved staff’s recommendation to prepare the 2022 operating budget with a residential property tax increase not exceeding 5.26% on the Town portion of the total tax levy. Council also directed staff to present strategies to mitigate the ongoing financial pressure associated with COVID-19 without further increasing property tax revenue in 2022.

2022 Budget Timelines

The timeline of the 2022 Proposed Capital and Operating Budget is as follows:

  • July 5 to December 5 – Public Input through Let’s Talk Milton
  • September 20 – Budget Call report to Council
