Budget Talks! Have Your Say!
Tell us how you would like your tax dollars invested. We value your input and look forward to hearing from your regarding the service levels you would like to see maintained, enhanced, or reduced.
The survey will be reviewed by Administration and Council to guide budget deliberations for 2022. Ratepayers are encouraged to participate in the process and win a $100 “Grow Olds With Us” gift certificate.
The Budget survey is open now and will remain open until October 11, 2021 and is available on-line.

Mountain View Regional Parks, Recreation and Culture Master Plan
The purpose of this project is to develop a regional parks, recreation, and culture master plan for the Towns of Olds, Didsbury, Carstairs and Sundre, Village of Cremona, and Mountain View County (known as the Municipal Partners). This plan will provide guidance to the Municipal Partners in making decisions that best meet the needs of their residents. Facilities and programming related to parks, recreation and culture will be the main focus of the plan.
Results of the surveys and public engagement sessions will be presented to regional councils in November, 2021.
See the Notice of Public Hearings page for current information.

PREVIOUS ENGAGEMENT AND RESULTS
Each year as part of the budget process Council reviews all of the programs and services the Town provides. Provincial legislation requires municipalities to have a balanced budget. This means money coming in (revenue) equals money going out (expenses). As we head into the budget season, now more than ever, ratepayers are encouraged provide input in where Council should be investing tax dollars. Your input guides Council and Administration to make informed decisions on what level of services ratepayers want to see in the community. Stay tuned for the 2021 Budget Survey coming this August.
