BUDGET PROCESS AND TIMELINE
Over the next few months, Lethbridge County Council and administration will be working on creating the 2020 -2022 Operating and 2020 -2024 Capital Budgets.
The process for administration developing the Operating and Capital Budgets begins in early fall. This allows all departments the time for a comprehensive review of their department’s budgetary needs and requirements. Each department reviews their operations, service levels and strategic goals based upon the Strategic Plan as part of the budget preparation.
Once the final drafts of the budgets are complete, they are presented to Council for deliberation and approval.
The schedule below is a timeline for budget presentations from staff for Council’s review and direction, culminating with final approval of the budget. The budgets are typically approved in December or early January to ensure seamless continuity of operations and planning for Capital Projects.
