The Annual Business Plan and Budget 2013/14 has been developed and took into consideration the feedback from the Annual Community Survey. The inaugural Annual Community Survey was undertaken in February 2013 using a statistically valid random telephone survey of 800 City of Burnside residents. The purpose of the survey was to provide a measure, of the level of community satisfaction and performance, with the delivery of services provided by the City of Burnside to its residents. It gathered information from the community in order to help develop the future of the City, by collecting their ideas, opinions and priorities to guide the planning and budget allocation processes.
The top five respondent suggestions from the Community Survey were:
- Footpaths need repair and more footpaths needed;
- Maintain/preserve heritage trees/verges;
- More hard rubbish collection;
- Council should improve communication, listen and engage with residents in relation to notification of works projects;
- More rubbish collection for green waste.
The Draft 2013/14 Annual Business Plan and Budget engagement closed in June 2013. The Annual Business Plan and Budget was developed as a draft to enable the provision of community feedback prior to the adoption of the final business plan and budget for 2013/14.
A total of 40 people responded to the engagement and all feedback was provided to the Elected Members to formulate the final budget.
The Annual Business Plan and Budget 2013/14 was adopted 25 June 2013.
This consultation has concluded.
