The COVID-19 pandemic has presented us with unprecedented challenges. Supporting our community through the outbreak was fundamental, but it has come at a cost. Overall impact of COVID-19 on Council finances is estimated at $31 million, with $9.5 million to be felt in financial year 2019/20 and a further $21.5 million in financial year 2020/21. As our total Council budget is about $230 million each year, this poses a significant challenge.
This Budget will affect us all and we want our community to be involved at every stage to help us shape the Budget as our City recovers from this crisis.
The updated Council Plan and Budget 2020/21 was endorsed by Council on 19 August 2020.
