The Mitchell Shire Council budget is our financial plan for the next 12 months.

It includes budget reports, budget analysis, long-term strategies, fees and charges schedule, rating information and our planned capital works program.

All Victorian Councils are required to prepare an Annual Budget and a Strategic Resource Plan.

Draft budget 2019-20 out now

Following community input through the Your Budget Ideas initiative last year, we've prepared a draft budget for the next year and a draft Strategic Resource Plan for the next four years.

We're now seeking your input. You can provide input through a formal process known as a section 223 submission. We've got some information on our Engaging Mitchell consultation portal and we're holding drop-in sessions.

Submissions close 22 May.

Visit for more details or to make a submission online.

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.
