    Savings and efficiencies, to keep rate increases to a minimum, continue to be a key focus in the 2018/19 Annual Business Plan and Budget, helping to achieve a more productive and community focused Council. The Annual Business Plan and Budget ensures that Council can deliver on the Strategic Community Plan: Be the Future of Burnside 2016-2023 in keeping with the Long-Term Financial Plan.

    The presented budget delivers a 2.70 per cent rate increase while still providing the existing 118 targeted services and programs for our community. Feedback received through the engagement process indicated that 47.3 per cent of respondents supported the proposed 2.70 per cent rate increase that maintains current services with minor enhancements. A further 8.9 per cent of respondents supported a rate increase of greater than 2.70 per cent.

    The community was asked for suggestions of projects that could improve their neighbourhood and a broad list of suggestions can be seen in the 2018/19 Draft Annual Business Plan and Budget: Results of community engagement document on the Council website.
