Budget 2013-2014

Budget Cover Page

Council's 2013-2014 Budget focuses on improving our City, and the services provided by Council.

Highlights of the $123 million budget include a low rate rise and the largest ever capital works program of $37.3 million to improve and upgrade public assets throughout the City.

This year we will also be required to collect a Fire Services Levy on behalf of the State Government. This money goes straight to the State Government and does not go to Council.
