The 2020/2021 Adopted Budget has been prepared on the assumption that the restrictions relating to COVID-19 impacting on Council services and the community would continue through to 30 September 2020.

This year the average rates rise will be 2 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 to not only help preserve Council’s financial stability in these uncertain times but maintain existing service levels while also supporting the recovery of our community post the COVID-19 emergency.

Total capital work program of $61.72m of which includes highlights including:

  • New Shepparton Art Museum (SAM)
  • Maude Street Upgrade
  • Road Renewals
