Lacombe County Council has adopted the County’s 2021 interim operating and capital budgets. This budget supports the maintenance of existing service levels while managing the County’s spending in a responsible manner that reflects the current economic situation and follows the priorities set out in the County’s Strategic Plan, long-range road construction plan, and capital equipment replacement plan.
Interim operating and capital budgets are approved each year. They are the first stage of a two-stage process that authorizes the County to spend on approved projects and conduct operations on January 1, 2021. Stage 2 is the approval of the final budgets and tax rates and occurs in the following spring when the Province sets the property tax levy for education purposes and when property assessment values have been confirmed.
