The Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) collects revenues from property taxes, fees and charges to provide programs and services and manage infrastructure such as roads, water and sewer as well as facilities, parks and trails on behalf of the resort community.
The RMOW plans its annual and five-year budgets to manage day-to-day services, operations, projects, and infrastructure investments and to take into consideration the longer-term strategy, challenges and vision for Whistler.
Strong fiscal management remains a foundation of RMOW's budget process. The budget is developed to manage current demands but is also focused on the longer-term strategy and vision for the community.
Annual planning process
Preparation of the budget is guided by the RMOW Corporate Plan and other municipal guiding documents; the leadership of the Audit and Finance Committee, staff and Council; direction provided throughout the year by committees of Council; feedback from the community through meetings, surveys, letters to Council and discussions; and thoughtful community planning and research.
