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 Budget Video

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. When the potential tax levy increases for Halton Region and Education are included, the overall increase is 2.69% or $19.45 per $100,000 of assessment.

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