The budget is organized by type of operation (tax-supported and utility-funded operations) with each operation considered a separate budgeting and accounting entity.  Amounts are budgeted and reported along departmental/program lines, with accountability and authority for budgetary approval, amendments and actual disbursements resting jointly with the business unit leader, the City Manager, and City Council.

City Council members met as Finance Committee from November 19-24, 2018 to debate and recommend a four-year operating budget for the City of Lethbridge. The 2019-2022 Operating Budget received final approval from City Council on December 10, 2018.
