From roads and transit to fire and emergency services, library, animal services and recreation programs, City services affect people’s lives each day. Decisions about spending on City services and service levels drive the budget. Residents can use the allocator to test different spending options by increasing or decreasing the budget for each service area and then see if they have balanced the budget.

 Results from the allocator received by November 30, 2018 will be shared with Budget Committee on January 14, 2019. The results will help inform the committee’s review of the 2019 proposed Business Plan and Budget. 

“The budget allocator helps residents understand the cost and level of City services and how property tax dollars are spent,” said Jeff Jackson, Director of Finance and Treasurer. “It is an opportunity for people to get involved in Mississauga’s business planning and budgeting process and to share their priorities."
