The budget is the financial plan that directs the flow of funds to programs and services in Dufferin County. It is developed based on the current strategic plan, operating plans as well as policies and initiatives approved by Council. Each year the County prepares a four year plan with the annual budget being approved by County Council.

The budget incorporates all expenses anticipated within the year including all costs and revenues required to support the programs and services we provide. From road maintenance, internet and office supplies to program specific costs that support Social Housing, Dufferin Oaks and the Museum of Dufferin to name a few. It also includes contributions to our capital asset fund.

The capital asset fund looks at all of the County assets including roads and bridges, vehicles and equipment, as well as buildings and their components. In conjunction with the asset management plan, tax dollars are set aside each year to ensure sufficient money is available when the asset is due for replacement.
