The City of West Kelowna makes strategic investments in infrastructure projects that will benefit the community for decades to come.
Projects must be weighed carefully each year. Council must balance infrastructure priorities, which include new projects and upgrades or replacement of ageing equipment, amenities and facilities, with the municipality's ability to pay, reasonable taxation levels and the need to build reserves.
