Council is proposing to spend $207 million dollars to support ongoing delivery of services and infrastructure during the coming financial year.

The Proposed Budget 2022/23 considers the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, while also planning for growth to support a flourishing, progressive city with a sustainable future.

The challenges of maintaining ageing infrastructure, while also investing in new infrastructure to meet the needs of our growing population, are specifically reflected in the $83.380 million proposed to support the provision of infrastructure and facilities, including:

  • $12.1 million for major projects – including a new community pavilion at Henry Turner South Pavilion in Footscray and upgrades to the Joseph Road Public Realm
  • $19.588 million to improve Council-owned roads and laneways
  • $9.214 million for parks, open spaces, reserves and streetscapes in capital improvements
  • $4.548 million for bike infrastructure
  • $1.601 million to build and maintain new footpaths
  • $2.172 million for recreational, leisure and community facilities
  • $2 million in subsurface drainage improvements

$123.5 million is also proposed to support the delivery of services to the community.

Along with things like the maternal child health and immunisation services for children and families, arts and cultural experiences, library and community centre activities and events, and community festivals and activations of public spaces; this also covers the management of Council facilities such as libraries and community centres, planning services, maintenance of our road network, and bicycle and pedestrian paths; along with economic development activities.

$425,000 is also proposed to support waste reduction.
