    Considering the proposed SCRD Budget increase and considering there is no comprehensive breakdown of core, essential, and non-essential services or the significant impact of operating budgets on various aspects of SCRD operations, one may question why the budget has not been further subdivided to specifically address each category. This breakdown would highlight the diverse range of services municipalities provide, ranging from fundamental necessities like public safety and infrastructure maintenance to cultural programs and non-essential projects. One potential line of inquiry could focus on whether a more detailed categorization within the operating budget could lead to improved transparency and accountability. For instance, could a more granular breakdown help residents and stakeholders better understand how their tax dollars are allocated across core, essential, and non-essential services? Additionally, does the current classification adequately reflect the evolving needs and priorities of the community, or would a more detailed budget structure facilitate a more responsive and adaptive approach to resource allocation? Exploring these questions could provide insights into the effectiveness of the current budgetary framework and whether refinements might enhance the municipality's ability to meet community expectations and goals while taking into consideration the ability of the taxpayer to pay for this Budget.

    The 190 Carry-Forward project list and the 103 new proposals is extensive and new projects should be defered if a project cannot be completed within the planned schedule. If completion cannot be reasonalbly achieved, it should not have been approved in the first place. In the December meeting, he SCRD has incurred engineering costs and staff time on projects that will no longer be built yet the taxpayer is to pay the bill for all costs incurred to date.

    I have been looking through this budget information for a date for Round 2 Budget Meetings but have not seen any dates posted. I did go back to previous Finance Meeting agendas and there is was indicated that the dates proposed are January 29th and 30th. Can you confirm those are still the correct dates? Thank you.
