Kawartha Lakes Council endorses 10 year financial plan

July 17, 2017 - City of Kawartha Lakes Council has taken a definitive step to ensure the municipality has the means to take care of everything it owns and manages in the foreseeable future. At the July 11 meeting, Council adopted a 10 Year Financial Plan that outlines a strategy for raising the required funds to cover capital and operating deficiencies while paying off a transitional debt by 2027. This is the City's first long-term financial plan to help maintain service levels and existing assets.

Since the Core Service Review began almost two years ago, Council has received reports of the extent to which the City's assets, including a vast array of buildings, parks, roads, bridges, fleet and equipment, are approaching the end of their lifecycle and require extensive repairs and accessibility upgrades. Throughout 2016, there were reports and recommendations by staff offering ways to trim the asset footprint to a more affordable size, including reducing the number of ice surfaces, community halls, libraries and service centres. Even with recent consolidations of buildings, the City maintains responsibility for $3.2 billion in assets.
