Operating Budget

If you ran the City of Lethbridge, what would your priorities be for City services?

This fall, City Council will set a new four-year operating budget (2019-2022), and now is the time to let us know what you think!

The City's operating budget is determined by the municipal services we provide. We invite you to examine these services and tell us how they compare with your own priorities. Click on the button below to get started!

The Operating Budget is approved by City Council and lays out budget allocations for all City of Lethbridge operations for the years 2015 through 2018.


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.
