Your City, Your Dollar- 2019 Municipal Budget

What is a municipal budget?

Each year, the City of Lloydminster develops a budget that accounts for anticipated expenses and revenues and allocates funds to meet the needs of the municipality. Once approved by Lloydminster City Council, Administration uses the budget as a benchmark to control the fiscal operations of the municipality.

Budget priorities are guided by City Council's Strategic Plan, which includes a detailed list of long-term and short-term objectives for the municipality. Furthermore, the budget is comprised of two sections: the operating budget and capital budget.

Operating Budget

The Operating Budget is established to fund the regular activities and functions of the municipality. These projects include:

  • Building maintenance
  • Street sweeping
  • Employee wages
  • Garbage collection

Capital Budget

The Capital Budget includes approved infrastructure renewal projects. These projects may include:

  • Road and sidewalk repairs
  • Facility improvements
  • Equipment replacement
  • Water infrastructure upgrades

The 2019 municipal budget process began with public engagement. The City used a variety of public events and an online survey to gather public input. The What We Heard Report contains the results and themes that were heard during the public engagement sessions.
