About the Municipal Budget

Every year, the Town of Paradise produces a balanced budget. A balanced budget means that money coming in must equal money going out, or that revenue equals expenditures. Revenue is collected through property taxes, water and sewer fees, user fees, and grants and subsidies. The municipal budget is comprised of two main components – capital  and operating.

The Town’s Corporate Services Department is responsible for assisting all other departments in the development of their detailed budgets. The Town budget is completed and reviewed with senior management and Council, with the final 2019 consolidated version being adopted in December 2018.

Paradise Budget Talks 2019

Paradise Budget Talks, our pre-budget consultations for 2019, expands on consultations held in previous years, and includes more interactive ways for you to talk to us about the budget. The goal is to engage with residents and collect meaningful input as we strike the right balance between maintaining and enhancing our services, programs and infrastructure, while minimizing tax increases. Your input will help us arrive at budgetary decisions that reflect what is most important to our residents.

Some of the ways you can help us plan for the upcoming budget include:
