2024 Annual Budget 

The Town of White City’s 2024 Annual Budget was adopted at the December 11, 2023 Regular Meeting of Council.  With its approval, Council and Administration aim to maintain current services while supporting the development and maintenance of new and existing infrastructure within the community.

The budget includes operating revenues of $8.0M, operating expenditures of $8.6M and $7.5M for capital expenditures.  Due to a conservative budgeting approach, the 2024 Annual Budget only includes a 1.0% overall increases to budgeted expenses from 2023.

The 2024 Annual Budget includes a base tax increase of $100.00 and mill rate increase of 1.0%.  For 80% of properties in White City this will mean a tax increase of $9.41 to $10.36 per month. Additionally, the 2024 Annual Budget includes an additional Wastewater Infrastructure Charge of $33.58 per month per household related to the costs of the WCRM158 Wastewater Management Authority’s Wastewater Expansion Project. The Wastewater Infrastructure Fee has been introduced due to the significant costs of the Wastewater Expansion Project required to accommodate the wastewater management for current properties and to accommodate growth within the White City.
