Draft Council Budget 2024-25 and Draft 2024-25 Fees and Charges

On display until 31 May 2024, 05:00 PM

The Draft Budget 2024-25 and Draft 2024-25 Fees and Charges have been developed over a period of months, working collaboratively with Councillors through fees and charges, operating budgets, projects and capital works at several budget workshop sessions.

The Draft Budget 2024-25 has been guided by the Revenue and Rating Plan, Workforce Plan and LongTerm Financial Plan to enable the priorities identified in the Council Plan 2021-2025 to be progressed within the available resources of the Council.

The proposed budget has been prepared in the form set out in the Local Government Model Financial Report (LGMFR) and developed in accordance with the financial management principles outlined in the Local Government Act 2020 (LGA 2020). Therefore, the budget to be adopted by 30 June 2024 is in accordance with the LGA 2020.

We encourage community members to view the Draft Budget and Fees and Charges and provide your feedback.
