Draft Budget and Strategic Resource Plan out now

Mitchell Shire Council is seeking input for the Draft Budget 2020/21 and the Draft Strategic Resource Plan 2021-2024.

Things have been moving quickly with C0VID-19 (Coronavirus) and this is likely to impact our draft budget.

We'll need to better understand the longer-term impact of COVID-19 on our community and on our operations.

The Federal and State Governments have advised they will delay their budgets. This may impact on our revenue.

By law, our budget for 2020/21 must be adopted by 30 June. At this time, this has not changed for local government. We are therefore continuing to call for formal submissions to our draft budget.

If major changes are required, we will consider that as part of the next stage of our budget adoption process.

It is still important for people to get involved. We want to hear from you. We're not holding face-to-face sessions this year, but we do have other ways you can take part.

Submissions need to be received by 5pm on Wednesday 22 April
Formal submissions will be considered at a Special Budget Submissions Meeting on Monday 4 May. The Budget may then be considered for adoption on Monday 22 June.

We look forward to your input.

Visit Engaging Mitchell Shire for more details or to make a submission online.
