Time is running out to have your say on budget

May 17, 2017

TIME is running out to have a say on Campaspe Shire’s draft budget.

Submissions close Wednesday next week.

Under council’s $81 million draft 2017/18 budget, council says all current services will be maintained while adhering to the Victorian Government’s 2017/18 rate capping constraint of two per cent.

The $74 million operational budget will be used to deliver more than 100 different services to the community and $29.9 million will be spent investing in Campaspe’s infrastructure assets, with a particular focus on renewal works.

Council’s waste service charge, including kerbside collection and recycling, will increase by three per cent per property.

Council will consider submissions at a special council meeting on Tuesday, May 30 at 4pm.

The budget will be considered for adoption at a special council meeting on Tuesday, June 6 at 5pm at the Echuca Civic Centre function room.

Copies of the draft 2017/18 budget are available for viewing on the council website at or at any of council’s customer service centres.
