Each year, the Town of Cobourg undergoes an annual budget process to create budgets that support town operations and deliver the programs and services required to maintain the high quality of life we enjoy in our community.

Through the budget process, choices are made to ensure Town of Cobourg services provided to citizens align with the priorities in Cobourg's 2019-22 Strategic Plan which were grouped under five pillars: People, Places, Programs, Partnerships and Prosperity. These were then broken down into 28 discrete actions.

Work to determine the Cobourg's 2021 budget is underway. Please follow the updates and discussion on Engage Cobourg to learn more about how the Town of Cobourg determines its annual budget. You can also view the Town of Cobourg's 'Five Step Process' for a quick and easy way to understand our budget process.

  • The Town of Cobourg Municipal Council and Staff are seeking feedback from citizens to identify areas of focus for the Town’s current and long-term financial priorities.

    The 2021 Financial Framework Survey provides an opportunity for Cobourg citizens to engage in the municipal financial planning process as staff prepare a draft budget and updated long-term financial plan for Council’s review and consideration this December.

    Every year, the Town of Cobourg offers engagement opportunities for residents to review and confirm financial priorities. Projects and resources advanced through annual budgeting processes ultimately align with these priorities. To help the Town of Cobourg shape these priorities, citizens are invited to complete a survey, open now until December 14, 2020 on www.EngageCobourg.ca.

    This survey will take approximately 10 to 15 minutes to complete.

    Thank you for your participation!
