Public Works

From turning on a tap or flushing a toilet to driving along a regional road, disposing of garbage or recyclables, or taking transit between municipalities - the services provided by Public Works play an integral role in our everyday lives.

The levy and rate financial streams fund services, and include an operating budget.

A capital budget is used to deliver the maintenance and upkeep of existing infrastructure, and to build new infrastructure.
