Five Year Financial Plan

What is a 5 Year Financial Plan?

The Community Charter requires that Council adopt a 5 Year Financial Plan each year prior to the adoption of the annual Property Tax Bylaw. The purpose of the 5 Year Financial Plan is to provide a budgetary framework for the City to plan the management of its resources, revenues and expenditures in order to best serve the community. The following video provides an introduction to the City's budget process.

The Consolidated 5 Year Financial Plan combines the 2023 Utilities Budget (approved by Council on November 14, 2022), the 2023 Operating Budget, 2023 Capital Budget and the 2023 One-Time Expenditures (all of which were approved by Council on December 12, 2022). The 2023 Richmond Public Library Budget was approved by Council on December 12, 2022.

Quarterly Financial Information Reports

Throughout the year, City staff prepare quarterly Financial Information Reports for the Finance Committee of Richmond City Council. These ongoing, unaudited statements provide Council and the public with details on the economic environment, key indicators and financial results for the reporting period as related to the City’s operating and capital budgets. This reporting supports the City’s commitment to transparency and accountability in its financial reporting and helps fulfill Council’s Term Goal of "An Engaged and Informed Community".
