Financial Plan

Five-Year Financial Plan - 2021-2025

Financial Plan Bylaw No. 16-324, 2021, passed first, second, and third reading at the April 13 Regular Council Meeting, and was adopted at the April 20 Regular Council Meeting. 

We've developed this document to present the financial plan for the City of Kamloops over the next five years. The City's financial position is detailed in the most recently published Audited Financial Statements along with definitions and explanations.

The following three budgets tie this plan together and direct City revenues and expenditures: 

  • General Operating Budget - Sets out how much money the taxpayers pay for essential services and the various revenues sources for the City, such as property taxes.
  • Water and Sewer Utilities Budget - Presents the revenue and expenses for providing water and sanitary waste removal services.
  • Capital Budget - Sets out the requirements and funding sources needed to restore, replace and renovate the City's infrastructure, such as our buildings, parks, roads, storm sewers, water system, sanitary sewer system, fleet and technology.
