“The Council of the City of Dawson Creek believes that the future quality of life in the community will be compromised if the current trends in revenues and expenditures are not addressed. Revenues are not growing fast enough to fund predicted future expenditures, especially for necessary infrastructure. Council intends to develop a range of solutions to protect the future of the community and urges our current citizens to actively engage with us in this vital work.” November 7, 2016
Council’s 2019 Strategic Priorities
“It is the intent of the City of Dawson Creek Council to move the Peace River Agreement revenue currently used for the Operations of the City back into the Capital program. As Council moves forward, it is the aspiration that a minimum of 85% of the Peace River Agreement revenue received be used for Capital investment with the remaining portion used for Operations towards debt servicing. The goal is to achieve this over the next seven years.” May 13, 2019
