Annual reports

Our annual reports provide an overview of our program and services, accomplishments and financial health.

Financial statements

The audited financial statements are prepared annually to show us the financial position of our County. The statements also highlight operational results and any additional notes that are important to our finances.

Asset Management Plan

Asset management ensures that we maintain and properly look after our assets. This plan allows us to budget for any repairs or replacement of assets without incurring any surprise expenses well into the future.

Financial framework

We strive to create conditions for inclusive and sustainable community growth. Our finance team annually updates a financial model that looks over a 10-year span at the management of the County's finances.

This model looks at the current budget year and provides a 9-year future financial plan for the County, allowing us to plan for large projects and develop a clear plan.
