Halton Regional Council sets 2014 Budget Not To Exceed 1.5% Increase


Halton Regional Council approved the Budget Directions Report for the preparation of the 2014 Budget and Business Plan. The Report sets out the guidelines and challenges that the Region faces in developing its tax and rate supported budgets. Achieving the 2014 Budget Directions will require a focus on continuous improvement and cost efficiencies in all program areas.

“Halton Region is committed to delivering the 2014 budget based on the priorities of the Citizens’ Priorities Action Plan,” said Regional Chair Gary Carr. “Over the past seven years, Halton Region has enjoyed one of the best records in all of Canada for keeping taxes low. We have had an average zero percent tax increase for the past seven years and now staff will work to deliver a budget that meets the citizens’ priorities while keeping taxes low.

Halton Regional staff will spend the next few months preparing the 2014 Budget and Business Plan which will be discussed at the Budget Review Committee on December 9 and will go to Regional Council on December 11 for final approval.
