Click here to see and learn about the 2024 Frontenac County budget presentations to Frontenac County Council, October 24-25 from 9am.



Our budget is the financial expression of the priorities of our organization. Respect for the taxpayer is of major importance in budget development for the County of Frontenac. Your input is welcome and is critically important to the budgeting process.

This budget relates only to work overseen by Frontenac County Council:

  1. Frontenac Paramedics
  2. Fairmount Home
  3. Planning and Development
  4. Economic Development including the Frontenac K&P Trail

Our budget is based on the following principles:

  • Transparency: Business plans, budget planning, and budgets are discussed and approved in open meetings of Frontenac County Council except as permitted according to The Municipal Act.
  • Fiduciary responsibility: Council and staff develop and approve budgets that balance the short- and long-term needs of the County and its citizens. Achieving this difficult balance requires that we make best estimates, predict most likely scenarios, and evaluate apparent risks.
  • Accountability: Council is ultimately accountable, within legislated limits, for the approval of business plans, budget policy, and budgets. In particular, Council is responsible to evaluate and establish service levels.
  • Alignment: Projects that support and align with the strategic priorities set by Council, or as required in legislation, receive the highest priority for Council consideration.
  • Citizen Input: Citizen input on matters including but not limited to strategic planning, business planning, budget development, and service level changes is welcome throughout the budgeting process.

That's where you come in. On this page are resources you can use to help shape and inform your thoughts and opinions on the budget and budgeting process. You will also find key dates, most notably the public meeting scheduled for January 18, 2023. Mark your calendars; that's your chance to present your budget ideas directly to Frontenac County Council.

Below you will find a set of tools you can use to engage with neighbours, Frontenac County Councillors, and Frontenac County staff on matters related to the 2023 Frontenac County budget. Participate in an online discussion. Share your ideas. Ask questions. It will all be submitted for consideration during Council budget deliberations.
