Inside the City Budget
Council deliberations of the provisional 2016 Financial Plan take place Thursday, Dec. 17.
Creating a great place to live takes vision, commitment and thoughtful financial planning. In Kelowna, the bold goal of the annual budget process is to create the best city of its size in North America. What lifts Kelowna above other cities is the quality and quantity of services offered within the financial limits of the annual budget.
The City of Kelowna’s annual budget aims for a balance between setting a reasonable tax rate and delivering services expected by residents and businesses. Check out the 2030 Infrastructure Plan to see how the City is planning for the future.

Kelowna is one of the most fiscally responsible mid-sized cities in Canada, raising two-thirds of revenues from sources other than taxation. In our 2015 Citizen Survey, we heard that 84 per cent of residents say they receive good value for their taxes. And the City of Kelowna has been awarded the Government Finance Officers Association Award of Excellence 13 years in a row.
