Budget 2024/2026

The Town of BWG is preparing its 2024-26 municipal budget. Upon Council's approval, the budget will be reflected on your tax bills through 2026. 

Property taxes and other funding sources (program fees, memberships, facility rentals, provincial/federal programs) make up the Town's revenue sources which allow us to offer the services, programs, and infrastructure maintenance and development that you rely on daily.

We want to hear from you!

As a resident, the municipal budget impacts you every single day. We are sharing this survey to better understand your expectations when it comes to BWG's budget, the services that are important to you, and the areas you want to see tax dollars invested.
The survey will be available from November 9-24. Please view the budget timeline for an overview of the budget process and key dates.
