Let’s talk about the budget

Read the 2020 Adopted Budget and Financial Plan to learn about how the City builds the budget, how the budget benefits tax payers, where your tax dollars go, and more. The 2020 budget works to align investments with the priorities Elgin residents identified in the community survey, as well as the City’s 2018-2022 Strategic Principles and Priorities.

We update this page regularly, so check in often, learn about the budget and help us see what’s important to you!

We want to hear from you!

We want to know about your priorities for the 2020 budget and your thoughts on how the City is managing its finances on your behalf. Your input will help inform the development of the final budget, scheduled to be presented to Council in mid-December. Here are some ways you can get involved:

“Budget On-the-Go” is series of informal meetings where you can hear from City staff, tell us what’s important to you and ask questions about how Elgin invests its money each year. Dates will be posted later in the year.
