Last year Council spent $192M improving Brimbank – how should we budget in 2019/2020?

Summary

Brimbank Mayor Cr Margaret Giudice invited residents, traders and other stakeholders to have a say as Council plans its 2019/2020 Budget spend.

Council spent $192 million improving Brimbank last year – we want to know how you think Council’s budget should be spent in 2019/2020.

Brimbank Mayor Cr Margaret Giudice invited residents, traders and other stakeholders to have a say as Council plans its 2019/2020 Budget spend.

“As a community-first Council it’s imperative that we listen to what our residents and traders tell us is important as we plan our next annual budget.

“Council’s budget covers a range of important areas – including keeping our city safe, improving our environment, building our city, helping people and supporting health and happiness.

“These are all important areas, but we’re asking our community to tell us which of these priorities are the most important to them, to help us plan future spending,” Cr Giudice said.

Council invites the community to have a say by ranking the following priority areas:

  • Health and Happiness (Festivals, Arts and Culture, Parks, Leisure Centres)
  • Helping People (Family, Youth, Children, Aged, Disability and Libraries)
  • Building our City (Local Roads, Bicycle Lanes, Footpaths, Community and Sporting Facility Upgrades and Town Centres)
  • Improving our Environment (Waste Management, Street Cleaning, Graffiti Removal, Planting Trees)
  • Keeping our City Safe (Animal Management, Environmental Health, Food Safety, Building and Planning Approvals)

Submissions are open until Monday 19 November.

There are three ways you can have your say:

  • Provide feedback online 
  • Fill in one of our postage-paid postcards (available at Council centres).
  • Attend a workshop (please RSVP on 9249 4860).
