Reporting to Council

Tuesday 15 June 2021

Continuing to prepare and build for the future

We, like every other NSW Council, are required to undertake long term financial planning with our community on services and facilities. This process is directed by the Integrated Planning and Reporting framework and is informed by plans for finances, assets and the workforce.

The delivery program sets out the work that we propose to undertake over the next four years to address community priorities and needs as outlined in our Community Strategic Plan.

As part of delivery program, we prepare an annual budget that identifies our spending for the financial year. It includes expected income and expenditure for all planned services and infrastructure, as well as, ongoing maintenance and depreciation commitments.

We also revise our Fees and Charges which details our proposed charges for services in 2021/22.

These documents were placed on exhibition for public feedback between Friday 30 April and Sunday 30 May 2021.

A report noting the outcomes of public exhibition and recommendations for adoption will be presented to Council at the meeting on Tuesday 15 June 2021.

View the Council Report, (Item 9.1, pg.18) and Community and Stakeholder Engagement Report.

The Council meeting will be held at Dee Why Civic Centre and streamed live from 6pm.

Requests to speak at the Council Meeting can be made here by 12pm on the day of the meeting.


Exhibition history
