Residents are invited to view the Draft Budget on Council’s Casey Conversations website or at Customer Service Centres and can make a submission until Tuesday 21 June 2016.
Council will consider any written submissions and adopt the budget at a Special Council Meeting to be held at the Civic Centre, Magid Drive, Narre Warren, on 28 June 2016.
Council developed the Draft Berwick Springs Wetland Reserve Masterplan, incorporating a wide range of suggestions received by the local community during consultation undertaken as part of the Narre Warren Development Contribution Plan.
