District Budgets

District Budgets

The District of Stewart completes a five year financial plan, which is updated every year, to ensure responsible money management that relates directly to the priorities identified by the community.

The CAO and the Director of Financial Administration coordinate the Districts’ five-year Financial Plan process, analyzes department budget information, prepares non-departmental revenue estimates, assembles the budget document and provides overview, financial monitoring, and reporting once the budget is adopted.

Steps in developing a financial plan:

  • The Director of Financial Administration coordinates budget submissions from the departments;
  • The CAO presents to Council the draft of the proposed Five-Year Financial Plan;
  • Council holds a number of meetings to review and finalized the proposed Five-Year Financial Plan for the final approval. All meetings are open to the public and Stewart citizens are invited and encouraged to provide their input and be part of the process;
  • The Financial Plan Bylaw is prepared based on Council decisions, given three readings and adopted.

Having a Financial Plan:

  • Provides District staff with clear direction and the authority to pay for services for Stewart citizens;
  • Ensures accountability to the citizens;
  • Meets the requirements of the Community Charter.

Water Quality Advisory:  UPDATE

POSTED: July 18, 2017

The District is aware that parts of town are experiencing murky or discolored water and are working to resolve this.Public Works crews are flushing the water mains in all neighborhoods today so you may notice some discoloration throughout the day.

It is recommended that residents let the water taps run to flush household water lines.

The Water Quality Advisory from February 2017 is still in effect, and is below for your convenience:

The District of Stewart received water sample results today from the lab and there is no bacteriological contamination. The water continues to be safe to drink. However, due to ongoing construction and maintenance work in and around the wells, the District has decided to keep a Water Quality Advisory in place. The Water Quality Advisory is the lowest-level notification and is used in situations where the public health threat is modest, and actions can be taken to reduce the risks. If you are a member of a high risk population, or you have concerns, you may choose to boil the water (roiling boil for one minute). Sampling will continue to be conducted periodically to assess the condition of the water. We will advise further if there is any change.
