Budgets and Financials

The Town of Gravenhurst creates many documents to let you know how we spend your tax dollars.


Each year, the Town creates an operating and a capital budget outlining the services and projects to be completed in the year. The budgets also set the tax rates for the year.

Asset Management Plan

In 2017, the Town developed an asset management plan (AMP) to determine the state of our assets, like roads, bridges, buildings and sidewalks. The AMP, along with the other documents below, helps guide our budget development process to ensure our assets are replaced in a timely manner.

Financial Reporting and Statements

The Town prepares a number of financial statements and reports outlining how your tax dollars were spent and comparing these results to the budget.

  • Quarterly variance reports
  • Annual financial statements
  • Annual financial information return (FIR)
