Welcome to the City of Niagara Falls 2023 Budget Engagement

Each year, the City of Niagara Falls undertakes an annual budget process to create budgets that support city operations and deliver the programs and services required to maintain the high quality of life we enjoy in our community.

The budget is made up of three parts:

  1. Operating Budget:
    • Property Tax Budget: Annual operations of city facilities and services, primarily funded through property taxes and user fees, excluding water and sewer.
    • Parking Budget: Annual operations of parking services, primarily funded through user fees and permits with some property tax funding.
  2. Water and Sewer Budget: Annual operations of water and sewer distribution, funded through user rates.
  3. Capital Budget: Capital program for all city projects, funded through taxes, water and sewer fees, development charges, debt, grants, or other reserve funds.

The Budget impacts you through the City programs and services you receive. Each time you have your road plowed, use a City park or trail, or cool off in a municipal pool or splash pad, you are seeing your tax dollars at work. The City strives to achieve a balance of services that improves our quality of life and supports our economy in a responsible manner.

Through the budget process, choices are made to ensure the City services provided to residents align with the City of Niagara Falls' priorities The budget is the City's plan for the coming year, expressed in dollars.

Please note: Effective January 1st, 2023 Transit will fall under the Regional Tax Levy. Please disregard any references to Transit in this information.
