Town Budget & Financial Plan

Built on View Royal’s Strategic Plan, the Financial Plan supports the enhancement of livability in View Royal through investments in roads, parks and trails, fire services equipment, technology and a commitment to service excellence.

Each year the Financial Plan is updated, or rolled forward, for the next five-year cycle. The process typically starts in September with Council considering a proposed Financial Planning Calendar listing key dates when Council will be making decisions about the Financial Plan. Members of the public can express their opinions during the public participation segments of meetings when Council is considering these items, or by watching recorded videos of the meetings and providing feedback.
