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 2021 consolidated version being adopted in December 2020.
