Our 2021/22 Draft Budget has been developed with community priorities at the forefront.
Through our community engagement program – Share Strathbogie – Councillors and Council Officers have been working with the community to understand their values, priorities and ensure these are reflected in the Draft Budget.
The Draft Budget is a significant document for Council and our community. It sets our fees and charges for the next year, along with the capital works program, the money Council spends on services and the resources needed to deliver these services.
This year’s Draft Budget provides for an operating expenditure of $29.7 million to fund services. This includes $7.545 million to roads, drains, bridges, and footpaths, $1.211 million to parks and reserves and $914,000 to planning.
It provides $17.05 million in new capital works that includes $3.804 million in roads, $1.4 million for bridges and culverts, $891,000 for pedestrian bridges and footpaths, $986,000 for recreation, leisure and community facilities and $331,000 for parks, open spaces and streetscapes.
For the first time we have also launched our innovative ‘Pitch My Project’ program where you can pitch your ideas for inclusion in the Final Budget.
