Budget

The annual budget process for the Township of Tudor and Cashel begins toward the end of a calendar year. Each Department Head reviews his or her year’s work and prioritizes projects and programs for the upcoming year. Costing is done for the various projects and programs and that information is supplied to the Treasurer. The Treasurer in turn completes a lengthy document that clearly outlines the Revenues and Expenditures of each department.

Each member of Council reviews his or her copy of the proposed budget then each Department Head presents to council his or her department’s plans for the upcoming year. Council takes the time to go through each department budget line by line to review, ask questions and justify expenditures. The Township utilizes 5 year plans for equipment and roads, etc. and maintains Reserves for planned future expenditures.

All council meetings, including budget meetings are open to the public. Notices for these meetings are posted on the Township website and advertised in local newspapers.

The Township’s budget is a public document and you may view or receive a copy of it by contacting the Treasurer.

Municipal Performance Measurement Program (MPMP)

The Municipal Performance Measurement Program (MPMP) is a program whereby all Ontario municipalities would measure their performance in various core service areas and report on their performance to the taxpayers.

Performance measurement is a tool that may be used to assess how well an organization performs in the provision of goods and services. Performance measurement:

  • creates measures or indicators of the efficiency and effectiveness of public services;
  • produces information that municipalities can use to make decisions to improve local services;
  • strengthens municipal accountability to taxpayers;
  • monitors ongoing performance to assist in planning for the future of communities;
  • evaluates past performance and allows municipalities to share best practices

Comparison of raw MPMP data to other municipalities also may lead to inaccurate conclusions, unless the following differences are taken into account:

  • geographic size and location of the municipality;
  • varying service levels;
  • differences in the method of service delivery;
  • unique factors in each municipality which impact service delivery or cost; and
  • differences in accounting and cost allocation methods between municipalities i.e. allocation of general government program support costs
