Financial Plan

Under the provisions of the Community Charter, municipalities must annually adopt a Financial Plan before the annual property tax bylaw is adopted. The planning period is five years, covering the current year plus the next four years. 

Council must undertake a process of public consultation regarding the proposed financial plan before it is adopted. This is normally done in the early fall by way of a public meeting. 

2025 Budget Planning Process

Salmon Arm residents and businesses are invited to participate in the City’s 2025 budget planning process, which is part of the City’s five year Financial Plan. A Public Budget Input meeting will be held on October 15, 2024 at 7:00 PM. You may attend in person at City Hall or by electronic meeting.

The meeting is an opportunity for the public to present or provide written input, to help Mayor and Council understand the public’s priorities. Participants must complete a 2025 Public Budget Request Form to accompany their request and are strongly encouraged to attend the meeting. Requests will be accepted until Wednesday, October 9, 2024.

Input from participants will be reviewed by Mayor and Council during budget deliberations in December.
