HRM Council is currently working through the budget for 2024/25. This budget will be developed through the end of March 2024, and is planned to be ratified by HRM Council in April 2024.

I plan to document this process as we go through it, including some of the more challenging decisions that we make.

You can also find much of this information here.

Budget Meeting Schedule (for 2023 /24 — I will update it for 2024/25)

You can find the full schedule of our meetings here. The agenda and supporting information, for each meeting, is put on the web site a few days in advance of the meeting, usually on the Friday before the meeting. Any meetings that don’t have the agenda posted will redirect back to the schedule page.

Public Participation

Our budget process allows for public participation at most of our meetings. If you would like to present to the Budget Committee at the meeting then you should register with the Clerk’s office by 4:30pm on the day prior to the meeting. You can contact the clerks office by e-mailing or by phoning them at 902-490-4210 (Mon-Fri, 8:30am-4:30pm).
