Planning & Development


Budget Process
Sept-Oct City staff prepare a preliminary budget.
Nov Public meetings are held where Council reviews the preliminary budget and may request changes.
Dec Council passes a multi-year budget.

While City Council can review the budget at any time, the City of Chestermere uses a multi-year budgeting process to ensure efficient and effective long range strategic planning. Over the next few months, the City of Chestermere will be developing a budget for 2017-2019.

As part of the budget preparation process, the City will be sharing detailed information about its municipal services as well as providing an opportunity for you to give your feedback.
