Financial Budget

The 2017/2018 Greater Shepparton City Council budget has been built on the priorities we established for the 2017-2021 Council Plan under the five key Strategic Objectives of Leadership and Governance, Social, Economic, Built and Environment.

The budget details the resources required over the next year to fund over 150 services we provide to the community. It also includes details of proposed capital expenditure allocations to improve and renew our Municipality’s physical infrastructure, buildings and operational assets as well as funding proposals for a range of operating projects.

The underlying financial principles of this budget and for the organisation going forward are to:

  1. Generate an operating surplus
  2. Fully fund asset renewals
  3. Borrow responsibly

Highlights include:

  • Roads ($13.67 million) including the Balaclava/Verney/New Dookie Road intersection, roads to recovery projects, roads to renewal programs, sealing, and resheeting
  • Waste Management ($6.50 million) including the construction of Cosgrove 3 Landfill
  • Buildings ($6.04 million) including the construction of the new Shepparton Art Museum.
  • Recreational, leisure and community facilities ($3.93 million) including Victoria Park Lake Master Plan and the Kialla Park Recreation Reserve multi-purpose oval lighting.
