Budget information sessions continue

will spread out across the region on Saturday 25 May for a second set of
community information sessions discussing the City of Greater Geelong’s
proposed 2019-20 budget.

The sessions will give members of the community the chance to ask questions and
find out about projects funded in the proposed budget.

They will also serve as an opportunity for members of clubs and groups to learn
about changes to the community grants program, which is proposed to be
significantly expanded.

Councillors will visit eight different locations in the Bellarine, Brownbill
and Kardinia wards, after the Windermere Ward councillors held sessions in
Corio and Lara on Saturday 11 May.

This is a good chance for councillors to speak to the community about the
projects in their local areas that are in line to be funded and carried out
over the next 12 months.

We’re hoping plenty of people will come up and say hello, find out about the
budget, and discuss any concerns or issues they might have.
