Description

The Smithers Citizen Budget website can be found at smithers.citizenbudget.com

This Town has expanded its public engagement platform for its 2018 budget by launching a new, online Budget Simulator Exercise called Citizen Budget. This interactive website allows residents to provide valuable input on how they would like to spend their municipal property tax dollars related to services and programs in our community.

The Citizen Budget simulator exercise allows residents to use their own property assessments to see how much they currently pay annually for a variety of Town Services (i.e. roads and sidewalks, protective services, recreation and culture, economic development, tourism, transit services and more). By using the calculation tool, they can increase, decrease or maintain service levels in each area and see what impact it has on their annual municipal property taxes.

This interactive website will be open to the public from Wednesday October 11th, 2017 to Sunday November 12th, 2017. The results of how residents feel about how their tax dollars are being spent will be provided to Council during their 2018 budget deliberations.

For those residents who do not have a computer or who would like some assistance to complete this online exercise a Citizen Budget information session will be held on Thursday October 26th, 2017 in the Smithers Council Chambers at 6:30 pm.

Any questions related to Citizen Budget can be directed to the Finance Department at 250-847-1600.
