2019 Budget Proposal and Citizen Budget Tool

Posted on November 29th, 2018

Residents can now make use of the “Citizen Budget” tool on our website. This interactive tool will help visualize the Town of Edson’s budget, as well as give an idea of the impact certain changes would have to taxation and service levels.
