PAST EVENTS

Budget Planning Discussions

Wetaskiwin City Council scheduled initial budget discussions for January 9, 10 & 11, 2019 from 8 am until 5 pm in Council Chambers at Wetaskiwin City Hall. This gave staff the opportunity to present their zero-based budgets to City Council for feedback.

An interim 2019 budget was approved by Wetaskiwin City Council at their regular December 17, 2018 Council meeting.

As stated in the press release, the budget process was mostly delayed due to Council's request that a zero-based budget be presented. Zero-based budgeting is a budgeting process that allocates funding based on program efficiency and necessity rather than budget history. This means building the City's budget from the ground up, which takes time and collaboration.
