Strategic Resource Plan

The accompanying Strategic Resource Plan outlines the financial and human resources that are needed to deliver on the Council Plan actions and to provide services and infrastructure for the community. It includes financial objectives, key financial results, key financial indicators, non-financial resources (human resources and infrastructure), key challenges, key assumptions and our projected financial statements.

Rate capping report

The Essential Services Commission releases a report on the outcomes of rate capping every two years. The current report identifies impacts and trends across the sector. It also includes a report for each Council group and each individual Council. Mitchell Shire Council is part of the 'large shire' group.

Review our annual budgets, strategic resource plans and fees and charges from previous years.
