After a four-week public exhibition period, the City of Casey’s 2020/21 Budget and Strategic Resource Plan was adopted at a Council meeting on Tuesday 23 June. The 2020/21 Council Action Plan was also adopted.
This year, the City of Casey will manage a total budget of $536.7 million that is committed to supporting the communities’ economic recovery from COVID-19. We will also continue to provide vital services and infrastructure for our rapidly growing municipality.
In 2020/21, our budget includes:
- an operational investment of $405.1 million. This investment will see the delivery of more than 60 services community-wide, spanning from child, youth and family to aged and disability care.
- a Capital Works Program valued at 131.6 million. The program will focus on the development of extra infrastructure, as well as the completion of more than 50 projects that began last financial year.
- a rate increase of 2.0 per cent, in line with the state-wide rate cap
A full list of Council fees and charges is available.
Effect of coronavirus
This year, Council’s budget will seek to strike a balance between financial sustainability that will see Casey through to the other side of the COVID-19 crises, while also being kind and responsive to the growing pressures our residents and ratepayers face each day.
