Moyne adopts Budget

DRAINAGE works in Campbell and James streets in Port Fairy and $2.4 million for further work on the Koroit Township renewal have been included in the 2024\25 Moyne Shire Budget.

The Budget, which was adopted by council at its meeting last Tuesday, includes a capital works program of $27.9 million.

This included $7.3 million worth of projects carried over from last year and a $9.7 million allocation to the local road network.

It also adopts a 2.75 per cent increase in the general property rate, in line with the state government’s rate capping policy.

Cr Smith said the budget was responsible and focused on service delivery.

“Costs are rising for councils, just as they have in the supermarket and at the petrol pump,” he said.

“We were facing significant increases in costs, however, we are committed to maintaining the service levels our community expects and maintaining our infrastructure.

“We are also determined to do that in a way that represents best value for money for our ratepayers.”
