Town giving Rocky residents chance weigh in on 2020 budget

The Town of Rocky Mountain House has put out a survey giving residents a chance to give their opinion on the 2020 budget, and to see what they think is important to be spending their tax dollars on.

The questionnaire states, “In 2019, Rocky Mountain House collected $23,841,300 from property taxes, cost-sharing agreements, grants, user fees and facility rentals,” and then in a 90-second video explains many of the financial details of the town before the user begins the survey.

Survey questions deal with issues including council salaries, parks spending, and tax exemptions.

Most of the survey’s 14 questions allow respondents to leave a comment about what exactly they agree with, or disagree with regarding any of the town’s activities.

Earlier this year, Rocky Mountain House administration also presented council with current mill rates compared to other municipalities to show where the town’s tax rates stood.
