2022 Budget adoption

West Kelowna Council adopted the 2022 Budget and Five-Year Financial Plan Bylaw setting the tax increase at 4.0 per cent at its regular meeting on April 5, 2022. This year’s budget balances the continuation of services while addressing the financial considerations of a growing city.

The 2022 municipal budget includes a 2.4 per cent increase reflecting investments in police services and a one per cent Infrastructure Levy. This year will mark the second year of applying the levy totaling $365,000 to help construct active transportation projects across the city.

The 2022 Budget was aligned with the recently endorsed 2022 Council Strategic Priorities under the four pillars of Invest in Infrastructure, Economic Growth and Prosperity, Strengthen our Community and Foster Safety and Well-being.
