Have your say - City of Rossland Budget

The City of Rossland invites you to use the interactive budget simulator to help us understand your priorities and to provide feedback to Council on various city services. The results of the exercise will be reviewed by City Council and shared with the public as part of the budget process.

This budget simulator highlights the difficult choices that must be made that directly impact the taxes you pay and level of services the City of Rossland can provide.

Pie Charts and other interactive tools will show you where your tax dollars are being spent based on your assessment.

Step 1: Go to rossland.citizenbudget.com

Step 2: Enter your property assessment value to determine how your tax dollars are invested. Note that this online tool only works with Residential Assessment Values, not values from other assessment classes. There are several different options you can choose:

  • Use the total value on your current BC Assessment notice
  • Check your assessment online by entering your civic address in the BC Assessment e-ValueBC website
  • Use the average Class 1 Residential (single family dwelling) assessed value for 2019 of $345,848, which is the default amount.

Step 3: Review each service description, then either answer the questions or move the slider to the (+) side to increase your contribution or to the (-) side to decrease your contribution to indicate the desired amount of tax dollars that you feel should be allocated to that service.

Step 4: Check out the Summary at the end to see how your decisions have impacted your property taxes.

Step 5: Fill out the Tell Us About Yourself section and hit SUBMIT. You will be brought to your own dedicated results page, where you can share on social media and encourage your friends and family to complete the survey.
