Our 2019-20 Budget is $272.2 million which includes an operating budget of $199.6 million and a capital works program of $72.7 million for new facilities and infrastructure.
As part of our city’s vision, a place for all, Council’s budget focuses on creating a connected community. We are introducing a navigation and connection program to support older residents to access activities and support services.
Our festival and events season will include lots of fun-filled events to connect with friends and neighbours, including an amazing Community Festival in March.
We are also focusing on how we make it easier for our community to interact with Council digitally with online applications, registrations, bookings and payments.
