The Budget Process
Developing a budget is a year-round process. Administration prepares a budget to cover the next year’s anticipated operating and capital costs. This budget is then reviewed by Clearwater County Council during meetings that run over multiple days (Strategic Planning Council Committee of the Whole meetings - or budget deliberations).
The Operations budget is prepared to a four-year outlook, but reviewed and approved yearly.
Capital budgets are prepared for a ten-year outlook as per the Municipal Government Act (MGA) and submitted to the Provincial government when preparing grant applications for funding.
