Financial Budget

The 2019/2020 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.

Council delivers more than 120 services to our community. To achieve a balance between services, community desires and funds available, this financially responsible budget puts Council into a healthy financial position, especially concerning challenges around rate capping.

This year the average rates wise will be 2.5 per cent. This is in line with the order by the Minister for Local Government under the Fair Go Rates System. Rates income is an important income stream that allows Council to maintain existing service levels, fund a number of new initiatives and continue to allow additional fund to renew ageing infrastructure.

The total Capital Works program will be $73.68 million, of which highlights include:

  • New Shepparton Art Museum (SAM)
  • Maude Street Upgrade
  • Balaclava/Verney/Dookie Intersection Upgrade
