Financial Plan Documents

During the Budget and Financial Plan Process, Council reviews a number of documents and presentations.  They will be available here as they are prepared and published.  We will also post the final Financial Plan and related bylaws when approved by Council.

Financial Plan Process

The Town of Ladysmith updates its five-year Financial Plan each year, as required by the Community Charter.  Part of the Financial Plan is the detailed budget for the current year.  The Town's Fiscal Year is January 1 to December 31.

Council reviews the budget at a number of meetings early in the year, before adopting the Financial Plan bylaws by May 15.  Citizens are invited to provide input into the budget by attending Council meetings at which the budet is discussed, or by writing to Council at any time.
