The interactive Citizen Budget Tool has closed. Feel free to explore the tool as much as you wish.
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 2018 budget deliberations and Council’s strategic priorities.
Thank you for your participation!
