Annual Business Plan and Budget 2019 2020

Annual Business Plan and Budget 2019 2020


Hello We’ve released our 2019-20 draft Annual
Business Plan and Budget and Long Term Financial Plan, and we’ve been out and about during
April, meeting many of you from our local community to get your feedback. Our new Annual Business Plan is a forward-looking
plan…focussed on maintaining and renewing assets we already have, whilst delivering
a diverse range of services and programs for you in our community. Last year we had a focus on new assets, to
replace some very old and tired ones. We built a new Parks Library, Taperoo Reserve,
Hanson Reserve Velodrome and Roy Marten Park. We are also building the Lights Community
and Recreation Centre, which should be completed late this year. 2019-20 is a time for consolidation with a
back-to-basics focus on how we use the $123.6 million of operating funds on your health
and wellbeing, safety needs, sustainable waste management and recycling, open space access,
arts and cultural activities, local business and more. This year we have also included a small buffer
of $944,000 for any unexpected shocks, and propose a modest rate revenue increase of
1.9%. Furthermore, we are undertaking a comprehensive
review of our operating budget for current programs and services, and ensuring that the
maintenance and renewal of our current assets align more closely with your expectations. We’ll be out again to midway through May,
so drop in and have your say about the 2019-20 Draft Annual Business Plan and Budget. Your feedback will help us decide how to make
our city more liveable, connected, innovative and attractive to visitors, and most importantly
to you as a resident, business or investor. Check our website page for times for a session
near you. Or you can contact us via email, a phone call,
or a letter…with contact details listed here on your screen. So have your say about PAE today.
