Council adopts Budget with record infrastructure investment

The City of Casey has adopted its 2019/20 Budget which funds Council’s largest ever Capital Works Program (CWP) and supports the delivery of 66 important services to the community.

Following a four-week community consultation period where residents were invited to view and have their say on the draft budget, Council adopted the final budget at a Council meeting on Tuesday 18 June 2019, along with the revised Council Plan 2017-21 and Annual Action Plan 2019/20.

Through financially responsible budgeting, Council has been able to continue its strong investment in the necessary projects and services for Casey’s large and rapidly growing community. This year’s budget includes:

• A $151.5 million CWP to deliver more than 330 infrastructure projects across Casey, in both our new and growing communities as well as our established suburbs.

• A $344.8 million operating budget that provides funding to deliver 66 core services to the community

• A rates increase of 2.5% in line with the State Government rate cap.

City of Casey Mayor Cr Amanda Stapledon thanked all those who took the time to view the 2019/20 Draft Budget and provide their feedback during the consultation period.
