Budget 2013

Message from the Mayor and Deputy Mayor:

On January 9, 2013, Executive Policy Committee tabled a budget that strikes a balance between our commitment to spend taxpayer dollars wisely and the need to make solid investments in our local infrastructure. For the first time ever, we are dedicating a fund for the renewal of local streets, back lanes and sidewalks.

Fixing our streets is a top priority for Winnipeggers and this budget sets out a long-term plan to do it. The 2013 Preliminary Capital Budget proposes a one per cent property tax increase to help fix our local streets. By leveraging these dollars through borrowing, we will have an additional $14 million to spend on local streets this year; a 66% increase over 2012.

We want Winnipeg to be a city that residents are proud to call home. By taking action now to improve our local streets, while continuing to fund our highest priority services - police and fire paramedic services - Winnipeg will remain a great place to live, work, and play for generations to come.

Input from the public is most welcome. Find out how you can get involved.
