About

About: 

The Golden Plains Shire Council Draft Budget 2020/21 was on public exhibition from 1 May 2020 to 29 May 2020, and all residents and ratepayers were welcome to have their say on next year’s financial plan.

With the sudden and significant economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic still being realised, Council has developed a responsible and fair Draft Budget 2020/21 that respects the challenges of the situation in Golden Plains and puts an emphasis on innovation and efficiency to reduce costs.

The primary focus of this year’s Draft Budget is to confirm Council’s commitment to continue delivering all its current services under the rates cap. Our people and our communities are the heart of Golden Plains – and this is reflected in the majority of budget spending dedicated to more than 60 services for the residents of the Shire.

With the principle understanding that maintaining our assets makes more sense than paying for new replacements, the Draft Budget 2020/21 also keeps Council’s investment in local roads and infrastructure steady with several important major projects funded by State and Federal Governments this year.
