Have your say on the 2019–2020 draft Annual Budget

Published on 01 May 2019

Council’s 2019–2020 draft Annual Budget and Council and Community Plan (including the Strategic Resource Plan) is available for public comment from Wednesday 1 May.

We are confident that this Budget not only continues the effort that has commenced in recent years, but also provides the necessary investment for a successful future.

We are committed to delivering good value for money to you — our community. We will continue to deliver the high quality services and projects that you already enjoy, and that together, make our City a great place to live.

In the draft 2019–20 Budget, we have allocated $41.02 million for asset renewals, upgrades and expansions, including the implementation of our Integrated Transport Strategy; open space initiatives; building improvements; community safety projects; and the renewal and upgrade of Council’s major infrastructure assets such as footpaths, drains and roads.

The draft Budget also includes information regarding your rates and residential garbage charges.
