District of Oak Bay Launches 2022 Budget Questionnaire

The District of Oak Bay is excited to launch its 2022 budget questionnaire.

The District of Oak Bay Council will soon be deliberating on 2022-2026 operating and capital budgets.  Once approved, the budgets provide the funds necessary to deliver community services and maintain infrastructure.  Community input informs Council’s budget deliberations and helps Council set Priorities for this budget cycle.  To this end, the District invites feedback on service levels and Council Priorities.

The 2022 budget questionnaire also includes questions pertaining to infrastructure service levels and the pace of tax and utility increases following the District’s release of the Sustainable Infrastructure Replacement Plan. The Sustainable Infrastructure Replacement Plan was presented to Council at the September 27, 2021 meeting.

Residents can provide budget input through an online questionnaire available at www.connect.oakbay.ca. Paper copies are available at Oak Bay Municipal Hall, Oak Bay Recreation Centre, Henderson Recreation Centre, and Monterey Recreation Centre.

“We encourage community members to take a moment to both read the Sustainable Infrastructure Replacement Plan and take time to provide their valuable feedback,” said Mayor Kevin Murdoch. “This is a great opportunity for the community to provide input and let Council know what levels of service and project priorities they prefer.”

The budget questionnaire will be open until October 24, 2021.

Results of the questionnaire will be reported to Council in late 2021 prior to budget discussions and will be shared with the public.

Anyone who requires assistance with the questionnaire is encouraged to contact the District by phone at 250-598-3311 or by email at communications@oakbay.ca.
