Budgets

Our budget is the financial expression of the priorities of our organization.  Respect for the taxpayer is of major importance in budget development for the County of Frontenac.

Our budget is based on the following principles:

  • Transparency: business plans, budget planning and budgets are discussed and approved in open meetings of County Council except as permitted by the Municipal Act
  • Fiduciary responsibility: Council and staff develop and approve budgets that balance the short and long-term needs of the County and our citizens. This difficult balance requires that we use best estimates, likely scenarios and evaluate risk
