Leduc County council approves 2019 interim budget

Leduc County council unanimously approved the 2019 interim municipal budget, which represents a 1.5 per cent tax dollar budget increase over the 2018 final budget, on Thursday, Dec. 6. The decision followed four days of public deliberations. 

The interim budget — which reflects council's commitment to providing high-quality, cost-efficient operations — means we can maintain the level of services our residents expect and deserve, and undertake new initiatives that will enhance the quality of life for our citizens. 

Mayor Tanni Doblanko

The interim operating and capital budgets are set at $85 million and $13 million, respectively. 

Throughout the process, council made difficult decisions that reflect the current economic climate, and that will minimize the impact to our citizens and businesses, many of whom are experiencing economic changes.

Mayor Tanni Doblanko

The approved interim budget allows important projects to proceed or continue before council approves the final budget in the spring. Council and administration will continue to monitor the budget until tax rates are set. 

2019 property tax notices will be mailed to all ratepayers in May.
