December 19, 2011 - Following the priorities set out in the County’s 2012 – 2014 Strategic Plan and its long-range capital plans, Lacombe County Council has approved the Lacombe County 2012 interim operating budget, which is balanced at $38,919,875 of revenue and expenses. Council also approved the 2012 interim capital budget, which provides for revenues and expenditures of $17,560,807.
As a cornerstone of its Strategic Plan, Council has put a high priority on sustainable and financially viable levels of service for the current and future needs of our citizens. With this in mind, a thorough review process has enabled Council to reduce costs in several areas in order to meet 2012 expenses with municipal tax rate increases of 3% for residential properties and 3 ½% for non-residential properties and farmland.
