The City of Williams Lake invites you to use this interactive budget simulator to help us understand your priorities and provide feedback on various municipal services.
The budget process highlights the choices that must be made that directly impact the taxes you pay and the level of services the City can provide. This exercise allows you to experience the types of decisions City Council makes when choosing between what the community wants and needs versus what we can afford.
Your feedback will inform the City’s 2020 budget deliberations and Council’s strategic priorities.
Thank you for your participation!
Step 1: Review the graphs that show revenues and expenditures proposed for 2020.
Step 2: Review each revenue and service description, then move the slider to the (+) side to increase that revenue/expenditure or to the (-) side to decrease that revenue/expenditure.
Step 3: Try to help balance City’s budget to 0 (for City’s revenue to cover all the proposed expenditures)!
