Port Phillip Council Draft 2012/13 Budget, 1

Key elements of the draft 2012/13 budget adopted for exhibition this evening include
  • increase in rates of 5.9%. This includes 1.2% for the price on carbon, and increased EPA waste levy* and 0.9% for funding the expected Defined Benefits superannuation call 
  • The main capital projects for Port Melbourne are the long discussed North Port Pavilion redevelopment: $2.58m, and the Liardet St Family and Children's Centre $1.7m
Submissions are now invited on the draft budget which you can access here. Submissions will be heard on 12 June at 6pm at South Melbourne Town Hall. I will provide more detail over coming days. Please make contact if there are any questions you would like to ask.
*this means the cost of disposing of our waste to landfill is increasing
