Draft budget open for comment

Council's draft budget was released this evening for public comment until Wednesday 9 June. Some key elements of the budget include:

  • Total operating increase in rate income of 3.8% plus 0.7% for the additional EPA levy.
  • Capital works program of $26.5 million
  • Council pensioner rate rebate increased to $103 in addition to the state government’s current concession of $187.60

I will look at the budget and Port Melbourne in more detail over this week.
