Meet & Greet With Staff

The District of Sooke is beginning budget-related discussions with the community during the summer to assist with budget adoption by year-end. This helps to ensure the District optimizes the use of its resources and allocates staffing and budget to priority areas.

As a relatively small, but growing, and young municipality combined with a tax base that is limited in diversity (92% of the DIstrict's operating budget is funded through residential taxes), priorities must be carefully considered and identified within planning. Through open dialogue, the District is excited to work with citizens and support each other's learning as we enhance communication with the community and deliver on our strategic priorities.

Phase One: Early Learning

This phase connects staff and residents on a preliminary budget conversation. How to participate:

  • Complete our “quick poll” question;
  • Complete our 3-question survey;
  • Meet staff at pop-ups throughout the community.
