Budget Information

The District of Sechelt has begun the 2019 Budget process. The Community Charter requires that local governments approve a Five Year Financial Plan bylaw each year prior to the adoption of the annual property tax bylaw.  The Financial Plan is also commonly referred to as “The Budget”. This is a draft because nothing has been decided yet. We are waiting for input from YOU.

This list is what is different in 2019 compared to 2018. Some of these things we can't control like utility rates but some we can, like additional staff. This is a proposed list.
