Service Review

Each year, as a part of the budget process, council reviews the programs and services that the municipality provides. This process confirms the level of service for each program and the associated budget estimates. Service Review is held during Governance and Finance Committee meetings. All meetings are open to the public. Following completion of Service Review, Town Council is ready to finalize the budget for the year ahead, which affects the tax rate set in the spring.

Public input is welcome at the beginning of each day on the topics for that day. Deadlines for submissions are included below. 

Please contact the Municipal Clerk at Municipal.Clerk@banff.ca or by calling 403-762-1209 for confirmation. The schedule below is tentative and subject to change. Items listed on this tentative schedule will not occur prior to the listed date. Public submission requests will not be accepted/ included on the Agenda for Items that have already been dealt with.
