Community input is being sought as the city prepares for the 2023 budget.
Administration says property owners and residents will have the opportunity to share their voice on municipal spending priorities through an interactive, virtual budget engagement process available at YourVoiceLloyd.ca/Budget2023. The survey is open until 11:59 p.m. on August 8th.
Six service areas are being surveyed comprising government services, protective services, transportation services, social programs and services, recreation and cultural services and economic development.
Based on the 2022 residential mill rate, respondents can add their property assessment value to see how increasing or decreasing service levels could affect their potential future municipal taxation rates as well as draft, edit and submit a budget and compare against anonymous submissions, and engage with other respondents through the feedback left on responses.
The city is including the trails and sidewalks network as the City plans for improvements in 2023.
Officials add the budget supports municipal services like recreation programs and facilities, public safety and social programs, capital infrastructure and the initiatives outlined in Lloydminster’s 2022-2025 Strategic Plan.
Previous years’ budgets are on the budget archive page.
Residents may request a printed version of the survey by calling City Hall at 780-875-6184, Ext. 2322.
