    Council has prepared the draft 2019/20 Annual Business Plan and Budget based on either a 0% or 2.5% rate increase.

    Council has prepared the draft 2019/20 Annual Business Plan and Budget based on either a 0% or 2.5% rate increase. 

    The budget at 2.5% maintains the current level of services, maintenance programs and asset replacement along with lists of proposed projects. 

    The prepared plan also gives an option to further reduce the rate rise to 0% as we have detailed within the plan the must have projects and nice to have optional projects along with our current range of services provided.

    Have we got the balancing act right? 

    In reviewing the list of proposed projects and services within the plan, are there any items Council needs to consider to add, reduce or delete?

    What enhancements would you like to see within the plan?

    Do you have any other comments or questions?

    We seek your feedback.
