Priority Based Budgeting

The Municipality of Jasper is introducing a priority-based budgeting process for 2023. In a priority-based approach, Council identifies its strategic priorities, which become the foundation for a collaborative, evidence-based process to rank programs and services according to how well they align with the priorities. Funding is then allocated in accordance with the ranking.
