The City of Belleville would like to invite stakeholders to take part in the 2025 Capital and Operating Budget processes and have their say.

The Capital Budget is the City’s plan for making large investments in infrastructure and services. Capital expenses include: major maintenance to public buildings, construction or purchase of new buildings, purchase of major equipment, significant road resurfacing projects, water and wastewater infrastructure, and more.

The Operating Budget is the City’s plan for the day-to-day costs required to deliver all City services to constituents. Operating expenses include road maintenance, snow removal, transit operations, garbage collection, recreational programming, park upkeep, health & social services, and more.

The Preliminary Budget Survey is meant to engage stakeholders in the early stages of the budget process and allow them to provide feedback on spending priorities and the overall approach to budget development. Stakeholders are encouraged to take the survey before June 5 to have their say.

The results of the survey will be presented to the Finance Committee and Council to assist with the development of guidelines for budget preparation. Departments will then use these guidelines as they develop and finalize their draft budgets. Once the draft budgets have been set, two more surveys will be issued to gather input from the public on the Draft Capital Budget and Draft Operating Budget documents.

Those who require accessibility supports to fully participate in the survey are asked to contact communications@belleville.ca so that appropriate arrangements can be made.
