A Municipal Election will be held in fall 2022. Municipal election expenses are funded from the Election Reserve. The contribution to the Reserve is $130,000 (2021 was $130,000). 

Work continues to evolve in the Records Management Program in the area of electronic records and Data Governance. 

COVID-19 caused a reduction in the number of licences that were issued and the associated revenue that was generated in 2021. It is anticipated for 2022 that there will be an increase in the number of licences issued compared actual revenues realized to 2021. It is anticipated that revenues will return to normal levels in 2023.
