2019 Budget


Like any business or household, each year the municipality is challenged with increased costs. The cost of providing services must be balanced with a tax increase the community can afford at any one time.

For this reason, as part of the budgeting process choices are made and in the 2019 budget process, only those capital works and operating costs considered to be critical to maintaining services have been taken into consideration.

Survey

The District of West Vancouver is prioritizing capital projects for 2019 and your feedback is important.

The District has received community requests for new assets. These requests are received through previous board, committee or community group approval. While these requests are not identified as infrastructure critical projects in order to provide services, they would be an improvement to the quality of life in the community. These new assets would be funded from alternate sources other than from property taxes such as unrestricted Community Amenity Contributions (CACs) received as part of development agreements, or by using provincial funding allocated to municipalities.

The survey will be available January 21, 2019. Please check back.
