The $45.9 million budget outlines the resources necessary to maintain and improve infrastructure, and deliver projects and services which are valued by our community. This year we incorporated a range of projects to specifically help respond to the impacts of coronavirus (COVID-19).

It also includes an investment of $11.74 million in capital works to upgrade and improvement vital infrastructure.

This year’s budget includes an increase to average rates income of 2% in line with rate cap set by the Victorian Government.
