THE City of Surrey on Thursday noted that Section 165 of the Community Charter requires all municipalities to prepare a Financial Plan for a period of five years to be adopted annually by bylaw. Surrey Council has provided direction to staff to have the Five Year Financial Plan (2022-2026) finalized before the holiday break. It also requires Surrey Council to undertake a process of public consultation regarding the Five Year Financial Plan before it is adopted.
The Finance Committee of City Council has scheduled a public meeting to consider the Draft City of Surrey Five Year (2022-2026) Financial Plans (General Operating, Capital and Utilities) that will be held in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 13450 – 104 Avenue as follows:

The Finance Committee meeting will be live-streamed on the City’s website at surrey.ca. Members of the public will be given an opportunity to provide comments to the Finance Committee following the staff presentation. For more information on how to participate in the meeting, visit surrey.ca.
