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.
We welcome your input for projects that can be considered for future Council budgets. You can find out more about how to do this on our Project Input page.
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.
