District of Stewart Council started to work on Budget 2015.

The District’s budget is more than just a piece of paper – it determines what level of service we provide for everything from recreation programs to road maintenance and more. It also determines what you see on your tax bill.  I would like to see active public participation during our budget discussions which are open for public. Make sure to have your say and learn more about how your taxes are spent and the exciting projects planned for 2015. Your feedback guides our decision-making at budget time and throughout the year. Managing your taxes is our most important job, and in 2015 we’ll be looking for ways we can further improve our budgeting and how we plan for our long-term infrastructure needs.

The next Budget meeting is March 9th, 2015

Thank you, Stewart, for this humbling victory.
