2023 budget

Strathcona County is committed to providing high quality services in an effective, efficient and financially sustainable way.  

Council and community priorities, programs and services, infrastructure and assets are all considered in budgeting.  

The County approves a multi-year budget every year detailing how dollars will be spent to maintain and improve municipal programs and services for the community. It’s a balance between setting a reasonable tax rate and delivering services expected by residents and businesses.

Budget approved

In an economic climate of high inflation, increased energy costs, supply shortages, shrinking grant dollars and post pandemic recovery realities, Strathcona County Council found ways to lessen the impact of these challenges to keep property taxes as low as possible.
