Yes. It is that time of year. The time when Council presents to the public it’s draft annual business plan and therefore the proposed budget. This of course informs the pending rate increase.
The purpose of the annual business plan is to let you know about:
- The services provided by the City of Unley
- Proposed new initiatives and projects, and
- The draft budget
Council seeks to achieve a reasonable degree of rate stability over time while ensuring ratepayers are paying for those services and infrastructure maintenance obligations they require.
For more information and for a link to an electronic copy of the plan go to this link to our website.
If you care about your neighbourhood I encourage you to look at the business plan and provide your comments and observations though the mediums explained on the website.
You will see from the plan that to fund the plan we are proposing a rate increase of 4.1%.
