The Draft Annual Business Plan and Budget sets out the services, functions and proposed projects for the City of Burnside in the 2019/20 financial year and the corresponding proposed increase in rates needed to deliver these services.
This year, Council is also consulting on its Long Term Financial Plan (LTFP) which is a forward looking plan that is focused on maintaining and renewing assets Council already has, investing in new assets and delivering a diverse range of services and programs, while keeping rates low and affordable.
The Annual Business Plan and Budget is a ‘snapshot’ year from the rolling ‘bigger picture’ of the 10 year LTFP – and is developed in accordance with the sustainability principles of the LTFP.
Community feedback received through past Annual Community Surveys has assisted in the development of Plans and this survey is another opportunity for you to have your say on what’s important to you.
What happens to my feedback?
All community comments received through this survey will be presented to Council for its consideration before the adoption of the Annual Business Plan and Budget on 25 June 2019.
