2022 West Nipissing Ouest Budget Workboook

Message from the CAO

“We are pleased to present the 2022 Budget Workbook in preparation for upcoming Council deliberations. Much like the first year of the pandemic, 2021 challenged the levels of service provided by municipalities and the methods by which we operate. Staff at all levels were asked to adjust services and procedures to protect themselves and the community. I want to commend each and every one of them.

This year’s budget deliberations will differ from how we’ve done things historically. We have tailored this year’s budget to present the information in a more concise and simplified format. We have proposed in advance key operational changes that are necessary to provide services to our residents while being mindful of future fiscal challenges.

Starting Point
Our current figures present a revenue shortfall of $431,603. This represents a 2.37% tax increase as a starting point.

I want to thank our Treasurer, Alisa Craddock for her assistance in finalizing the budget numbers as well as our Communications team for compiling the information in this document and on the web.

I’m looking forward to productive discussions regarding the information provided.
Jay Barbeau”
