The Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) provides programs and services, and manages parks, trails, infrastructure and facilities on behalf of the resort community.
The RMOW’s budget balances municipal revenues with expenditures and reserve transfers to pay for municipal services and to save for future expenses.
The RMOW’s Audit and Finance Standing Committee provides direction and guidance to staff during the development of the budget. Council deliberates on and ultimately adopts the municipality’s Five-Year Financial Plan (budget document). Following this tax rates are calculated, tax rate bylaws are adopted, and property tax notices are sent to property owners.
