Resources and visual aids used when bringing budget information to Council
We are kicking off our Budget Planning Season and would like to present our first round of the financial budget to council.
This will be our first year with this council's strategic plan and first year council will be taking a deep dive into the budget. We do not just want to provide them with large overwhelming spreadsheets and wondering what other visual aids like Power points and KPI's Municipality's incorporate into their budget information put forth to council.
examples where we are looking for improvement include visual aids to present capital projects spanning over into multiple departments like storm/sewer/water and presenting funding from reserves in a more simplistic manner.
... this is my first year leading the budget for the financial department so any examples, thoughts, or prior presentations are much appreciated.
