Today, December 21, 2021, Wheatland County Council approved the 2022 interim operating and capital budgets with a proposed zero % increase to municipal tax rates.
The overall $82.4 million budgets include estimated operating expenditures of $63.8 million and estimated capital expenditures of $18.6 million. Council was mindful to avoid a municipal tax increase to allow both economic recovery and growth, while lessening financial impacts to Wheatland residents and businesses.
“Wheatland County Council is pleased to pass the Operating and Capital Budgets with no municipal tax increase for 2022. Council has reviewed the budget diligently and we continue to focus on our primary goals of balancing providing municipal services and maintaining tax rates for County residents and businesses.”
