We want to hear your budget ideas

Pyrenees Shire Council is in the midst of preparing the 2018-19 Budget.

The budget is a big piece of work that is compiled from Community Action Plans, Council Plan Strategies, Statutory Obligations, Departmental Priorities and input from Council.

Each year Council has a budget of around $20million to allocate to all services to the community.

Priorities of this budget include gravel and sealed roads, residential property development, town beautification, maternal and child health and economic development.

Council will host two community briefing sessions this month, one at the Waubra Recreation Reserve on Wednesday March 21 and the other at the Raglan Hall on Thursday March 22 at 6pm.

We’re also inviting your feedback directly via an online consultation platform called OurSay: http://www.oursay.org/pyrenees-shire-council Put in your comments and answer questions about the budget from the comfort of your own home.

The draft budget will be considered by Council at the April Council meeting and then go out for public consultation until the 18th May. 

Council will then consider the adoption of the 2018-19 Budget at its June Council meeting.

We acknowledge the people past and present of the Wadawurrung, Dja Dja Wurrung, and Djab Wurrung tribes, whose land forms the Pyrenees Shire. We pay our respect to the customs, traditions and stewardship of the land by the elders and people of these tribes.
