Vernon Budget 2020

Thank you for taking time to complete the City of Vernon’s 2020 Budget Survey!

The 2020 Budget Survey is intended to take as long as you want. The Survey is 10 questions that can be completed in as little as 5 minutes, or could take 15 to 20 minutes should you want to review the 2019 Budget to get a better understanding of the services provided by the City. Links to our 2019 Budget, called the 2019-2023 Financial Plan, are provided at the end of each question.

The 2020 Budget Survey is a great way for residents of Vernon to communicate their comments and suggestions to Mayor and Council. The 2020 Budget will be set at the end of this year and your comments could influence their decisions.

This survey is based on service levels. Services are those that the City provides for its residents such as policing and other protective services, fire rescue and emergency management, parks and recreation services, infrastructure renewal and replacement, community planning and development and the operation and maintenance of City assets such as roads, transportation networks and storm drainage systems. The level of services provided are measured in various ways such as the cost to provide services or services residents actually experience and expect from the City.

To help provide context the 2019 budget for each service area is referenced along with its percentage of total taxation. Total taxation is the amount of property taxes that the City collected to operate and maintain the levels of service for the City. Total Taxation for 2019 was just over $40 million. The property tax process includes collecting taxes for other governments such as the Regional District of North Okanagan and the Province of BC; however, these funds are collected by the City and then immediately forwarded to them.
