Budget document cover
We recently released our Draft Budget and Draft Strategic Resource Plan (DSRP) for formal submissions under Section 223 of the Local Government Act.

The community greatly assisted in setting the Draft Budget 2020/21 through the Your Budget Mix initiative last year with more than 200 responses received online and through community engagement.

The DSRP guides Council’s commitment to long term financial sustainability, delivering key services for current and future communities, accountability and working within the annual rate cap.

It is still important to get involved. Things have been moving quickly with C0VID-19 (Coronavirus) and this is likely to impact our draft budget.

We'll need to better understand the longer-term impact of C0VID-19 on our community and on our operations.

The Federal and State Governments have advised they will delay their budgets. This may impact on our revenue.

By law, our budget for 2020/21 must be adopted by 30 June. At this time, this has not changed for local government. We are therefore continuing to call for formal submissions to our draft budget.

If major changes are required, we will consider that as part of the next stage of our budget adoption process.

It is still important for people to get involved. We want to hear from you. We're not holding face-to-face sessions this year, but we do have other ways you can take part.

You can provide input through a formal process known as a Section 223 submission.

  • Step 1: Read the draft documents and associated information
  • Step 2: Decide whether you'd like to provide feedback as a Section 223 submission
  • Step 3: Complete our online or hard copy feedback or submission form
Submissions need to be received by 5pm on Wednesday 22 April

Formal submissions will be considered at a Special Budget Submissions Meeting on Monday 4 May. The Budget may then be considered for adoption on Monday 22 June.


We look forward to your input.
