Telkwa's 2014 Budget and 5 Year Financial Plan
Communities are established (incorporated) to provide common services and to finance the equipment systems, built structures and staff required to deliver them. These responsibilities include the most obvious, such as the provision of clean and safe water, sewer, garbage/recycling collection and road maintenance and the necessary such as community fire protection and emergency response capabilities. They also include the “softer” areas around the delivery of social, cultural and recreational opportunities desired by residents.

Council and staff have started the yearly process of establishing the 2014 Budget and 5 year financial plan. Over the next few months, open public meetings will be scheduled and posted on our website www.telkwa.com and available at the Village office 250-846-5212.

The preliminary time line is to have the final draft ready for the 1st of 3 formal readings starting in April of 2014.

Council and staff are primarily guided by our Official Community Plan & Integrated Sustainability Plan which were created with extensive community input and adopted as official by-laws in 2012. We also consider input from our Chief Administrative Officer, Public Works, Fire Chief and Economic/Community development officer. Of equal if not greater importance is the yearly participation of individual residents. It is our time to ask questions, provide suggestions and get a sense of both the financial challenges and opportunities that we collectively face as a community.

If personal attendance at one or more of these budget meetings is not possible, I would be more than happy to have a one on one conversation. I can be reached at 250-846-5464 or rimas@citywest.ca

In addition, please feel free to stop me if our paths cross while I'm out and about in our community.                                                                   

Councillor Rimas Zitkauskas
