Sunraysia locals are being invited to give their input on the Draft 2018-2019 Budget.

 

Mildura Rural City Council have endorsed the Draft plan at a Special Meeting, the plan representing a financial approach to delivering dozens of services, infrastructure, and facilities.

 

Worth over 115 million, the budget will be provided through State and Federal Grants; rates, income from fees, charges and contributions and other sources.

 

Highlights of the draft include over 8 million to renew and upgrade sealed and unsealed roads, 2.57 million dollars for parks, open spaces and streetscapes and 1.52 million for waste and recycling services.

 

Council says they've continued to work to reduce rate increase amounts from 6% in 2011-2012 to just 2.25%.

 

Written submissions on the Draft Budget can be made up until 5 pm Monday June 11th.
