Project Overview

Council has endorsed the release of the Proposed 2022-23 Budget.

Supporting a raft of capital works projects and progressively increasing spending on existing assets are key features of the Proposed 2022-23 Budget.

The Proposed Budget also incorporates the Rating and Revenue Plan annual update and the proposed Sale of Council Land (Buildings).

Through the Rating & Revenue Plan, Council proposes to set out its system of how rates are sourced from the community.

To help ensure that the needs of the community are met in coming budgets and reduce debt levels, Council is also seeking submissions on the potential sale of four surplus properties.

We invite feedback from the public on all topics, with the submission period closing at 5pm on Tuesday 24 May 2022.
