Yesterday the Ombudsman tabled a report in Parliament — Investigation into three councils’ outsourcing of parking fine internal reviews. The report makes three recommendations for reform to the State Government and two recommendations for the three councils subject to the review — including Glen Eira City Council.
Council’s 2019–2020 draft Annual Budget and Council and Community Plan (including the Strategic Resource Plan) is now available for public comment.
Glen Eira Mayor Cr Jamie Hyams said Council is 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,” he said.
“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, Council has 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.
As part of the Budget process, Council will be hosting an online chat with Cr Hyams on Thursday 16 May from 6pm to 7pm via Council’s What’s on in Glen Eira Facebook page. If you have any questions regarding the draft Budget, we encourage you to visit our Facebook page and sign up to this event, which will be live on Wednesday 1 May.
An information session will also be held on Monday 20 May from 6.30pm at Glen Eira Town Hall.
The draft Budget and Council Plan can be viewed online.
The opportunity to provide feedback closes on Thursday 6 June 2019.
