The Township of Scugog provides programs and services to the community based on an annual Operating and Capital budget. The 2023 budget planning process has begun. Input from the community is a vital part of the budget planning process. A Budget Information Package and annual Budget Feedback Form are developed in a continuing effort to increase taxpayers understanding of and participation in the annual budget process.

The Township hosts two Public Open House meetings, an opportunity for residents to review the budget, ask questions and provide feedback.

Open House - Draft Capital Budget - TBD

Open House - Draft Operating Budget - TBD

Submit your questions or comments in Question and Answer section below or by emailing budget@scugog.ca. Questions will be addressed during the open house or by email afterwards.


Scugog's Piece

Each year, the Township undergoes a robust process to create an annual budget that delivers the services and programs residents and businesses rely on.

Did you know, out of all the property taxes you pay to the government each year, municipal taxes make up only 9% of the total amount. Of that 9%, the Township receives 3% from overall taxes to operate and plan for services and infrastructure that you use everyday.

Capital Budget

The Capital budget outlines Scugog's plan for long-term projects. Examples of capital expenses may include:

  • Infrastructure development, building and construction projects (e.g. building new roads, bridges and sidewalks)
  • Park and greenspace improvements
  • Fleet expansion and maintenance (e.g. purchasing new fire trucks and snow plows)

Operating Budget

The Operating budget outlines our spending plan for the upcoming year. This includes the day-to-day costs of running:

  • Fire and Emergency services
  • Township Facilities (e.g. Scugog Arena, Blackstock Recreation Complex, Birdseye Aquatic Facility, Scugog Public Library, Scugog Shores Museum and Town Hall)
  • Recreation programs
  • Road maintenance
  • By-law enforcement
  • Debt payments and transfers to reserves

Online & Paper Opportunities

Community members can also share their 2023 Township budget priorities:

  • by calling the Municipal office to request a paper budget feedback form at 905-985-7346.

Feedback received will be shared with members of Council and municipal staff during the 2023 municipal budget process. All individual responses will be anonymous and will only be used to summarize overall feedback received from the public.

    Are you addressing the accessible walk-way and ramp system from Shanly Street down to Water Street? It definitely is in need of attention to avoid injuries to the people who use it.

    Yes, we are planning to include a walkway in the budget / forecast. However, before the walkway can be replaced, the original developer of the condo will be installing drainage improvements and we anticipate they will be completed in 2022.
