Operating and Capital Budgets

Town staff develop the annual budget according to the guidelines approved by Milton Council in July and also consider input received from the public. Council usually deliberates and approves the budget in December of each year, ensuring an approved budget is in place for the start of the new year.

2018 Approved Budget

On December 11, 2017, Milton Council ratified the 2018 budget representing an investment of $73 million in capital projects and $127 million to continue to provide residents with the programs and services they rely on daily through the operating budget.

The budget supports the Town's Strategic Action Plan, Destiny Milton 3, through continued construction of the Sherwood Community Centre and Library, the addition of a new Fire Station, and ongoing planning for the Milton Education Village and Sustainable Halton Lands. The budget also eliminates the dedicated hospital levy by providing funding for future debt payments from Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation revenue.

The property tax increase resulting from the 2018 budget is an additional $13.64 per $100,000 of residential assessment.  Combined with estimated changes at the Region and School Board, the average household would see an estimated overall 2.72% change from 2017 property taxes, or $19.63 per $100,000. Milton's budget accounts for 1.89% of the 2.72% total.

It is expected that the 2018 Approved Budget Book will be available by March 2018.  The 2018 Proposed Capital and Operating Budget is available for review below.

The information in the Budget Book documents can be offered in alternate formats or with communication supports, upon request.
