About this year's budget
The proposed 2018 budget balances the need to maintain modest tax rates with the quality of life we in Central Saanich are fortunate to enjoy.
This year, in addition to maintaining services to our growing community, we continue to invest for the future, in Council's priority projects and we are providing new funding for public safety.
The proposed property tax increase is 2.97% (3.6% including water and sewer rates) is consistent with other local governments and lower than our five-year average.
