The Comox Valley Regional District presents the 2013-2017 proposed financial plan and capital expenditure program to various board committees until March 15.

The proposed budget is presented at committee level for review and recommended changes. Presentations are open to the public and posted online.

The board must adopt the five-year financial plan by March 31.

The yearly process utilizes ‘zero- based’ budgeting concepts, meaning each service is reviewed and budgets created based on approved work plans and priorities.

A committee of the whole financial planning session runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday at the CVRD boardroom at 600 comox Road in Courtenay.

The next CVRD board meeting is Feb. 26 at 4 p.m.

The Comox Valley Regional District website is at www.comoxvalleyrd.ca.
