The 2022 Operating Budget and Five-Year Financial Plan has been approved by the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George.

Of that, $20.6 million or 64%, will be funded through property taxation, about 2.67% more than in 2021. According to the district the rest will come from grants, user fees, and use of reserve funds.

The district noted some of 2022’s significant expenditures include Solid Waste Management ($23.1 million), 9-1-1 Emergency Response Services ($8 million), Protective Services ($7.3 million), and Recreation and Cultural Servives ($5 million).
