The draft Annual Business Plan provides details on how we will fund the inflationary costs for our existing services, new services and assets, and cost pressures.
The additional costs to our budget have been partially offset with over $1M of continuous improvement savings as well as $0.4M of growth revenue. This has resulted in a proposed rate increase of 1.25 per cent for 2021/22.
Council has achieved a sustainable operating surplus since 2019/20. The positive impact of operating surpluses over the last few years have accumulated to help manage Council’s overall debt in 2021/22. We are committed to maintaining this trend as a key component of Council’s long term finance strategy.
