The budget aims to respond to feedback from the community about their needs and priorities. Community feedback was drawn from two major engagement activities over the past 18 months: focus groups held in Smythesdale, Rokewood and Lethbridge in November - December 2015; and the Council Plan survey, completed by 263 people from across the Shire in December 2016.
