Funds for the operating budget typically come from property taxes, fees, charges, grants, cost recover, donations, contributions and other miscellaneous items.

Capital budget

The capital budget outlines the Township's plan to take care of what it owns and plan for the future. Through the capital budget, the Township is investing capital funds into Uxbridge's infrastructure, ensuring current and future generations will be able to enjoy all the opportunities Uxbridge has to offer. The budget focuses on taking care of existing infrastructure, such as:

  • Road reconstruction
  • Park improvements
  • Recreation facility upgrades
  • Fleet replacement
  • Building upgrades

We focus on prioritizing infrastructure projects identified through the Asset Management Plan. The capital budget is funded through project property taxes, reserve funds, development charges, contributions and grants.

Budget process

Through the annual budget, program and service levels are set, expenditures for delivering programs and services are estimated and we determine how to fund these expenses. The budget process consists of:

  • Preparation of department operating and capital budgets
  • Detailed interval review
  • Open house budget meeting (provides an opportunity for the public to meet with Council and department heads to discuss budget items and other concerns)
  • Public budget meetings (allow departments to present budgets and Council deliberates budget amounts and issues an may make changes to the budget)
  • Approval and adoption of the operating and capital budget

Although the Township prepares and approves a two-year operating budget and a 10-year capital budget, the Municipal Act requires that the Township must review the budget each year and make changes if required and re-adopt the budget.

Through this budget process, the Township determines the amount of property tax revenues needed and sets property tax rates for the year.
