Maintaining and improving the quality of life for everyone in Fredericton depends on the efficient and reliable delivery of city programs and services. It’s the city’s annual budget that determines how we pay for these vital services.
Think about how many City services affect you every day. The roads and public transit system that people depend on to get around; the police, bylaws and fire services that people depend on for their safety; the parks and waste management services that contribute to clean and healthy living; the social and leisure activities that help make Fredericton a vibrant, inclusive, and rewarding place to live and visit.
Every service that touches Frederictonians in their day-to-day lives has associated costs. The city’s budget identifies those costs, and the sources of revenue that will pay for those services. A new budget is created and proposed every year.
