Annual Budget

Council prepares an annual budget report which details the financial position, capital works program and fees and charge schedule. The Budget has been prepared in accordance with the Local Government Act 2020 and the Local Government (Planning and Reporting) Regulations 2020.

The 2021/22 Budget comes at a time of recovery, stabilisation and growth for our communities as we transition out of the health, social and economic strains placed upon us all during the COVID-19 pandemic. The modest rate cap increase of 1.5%, as set by the Victorian Government, will help preserve Council’s ongoing financial sustainability and support the recovery of our community post the COVID-19 emergency.

Council's capital works program of $14.6 million will contribute meaningfully to the economic and social strength and stability to our shire. Council will continue to deliver critical infrastructure, with a commitment of $6.3 million for roads and bridges across the shire.

The 2021/22 Budget was adopted by Council on 23 June 2021.
