Budget 2016: Be informed. Be part of the process

Mon, 21 Sep 2015

Oakville is committed to offering valued services and programs to residents and making strategic investments in community priorities. Each year the town’s annual budget is one of the most important tasks facing Town Council, and Council has directed staff to prepare a budget that keeps the overall tax increase in line with inflation.

The 2016 Budget process runs from October 5 to December 14, 2015.
