Budget 2023

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Every year, Aurora Town Council approves the operating budget and capital budget for the next year.

The operating and capital budgets outline how the Town will use our finances to deliver services to residents. The operating budget focuses on day-to-day expenses, while the capital budget covers major infrastructure requirements.

The Town of Aurora relies on property tax dollars to fund these services, facilities, programs and infrastructure that contribute to your quality of life. As a member of the community, it’s important that you feel informed about the Town of Aurora budget, and that you have an opportunity to share your input on what matters and what you feel are budget priorities.

About the Town's budget

The Town of Aurora is a lower tier municipality that receives the majority of its revenues from property taxes. The Town develops a budget for every fiscal year. The development of each annual budget is an extensive, thorough process, involving stakeholders’ input and reflecting decisions made throughout the year. Town priorities align with Council’s priorities and our approved Strategic Plan.

The majority of the Town’s total budget is allocated to its front line services such as roads, parks, recreation, fire, development and library services. The remaining budget funds are allocated to resources required to support its front line services.

The 2023 Budget is the first budget of the new term of Council. Aurora’s multi-year budget development includes a single year budget approval for the first year of Council followed by a three-year budget in the second year for the balance of the term. While the 2023 budget will only seek approval for one year, the budget will include an overview of what is to come in the next three years.

The Town’s priorities align with those of Council, as well as its approved Strategic Plan, all of which are heavily influenced by the Town’s businesses and residents.

Overall the Town strives to ensure that every approved budget:

  • Allows for the continued delivery of the Town’s programs and services that residents have come to expect
  • Achieves all defined service levels
  • Invests in the long term sustainability of the Town’s essential infrastructure
  • Supports the Town’s strategic plan objectives
