Budget & Revenue and Rating Plan

Council adopted its Annual Budget 2021/22(PDF, 5MB) and Revenue and Rating Plan 2021-2025 at an Unscheduled Council Meeting on Tuesday 29 June 2021.

The budget includes $36.06 million in capital works projects across the shire which will provide a much-needed boost for the local economy and maintain and create jobs. Some new projects include roof works at Kyneton Museum, $5.2 million for the Macedon Ranges Regional Sports Precinct, new entrance landscaping for Gisborne Botanic Garden and funds towards the final stages of the Romsey Ecotherapy Park.

A rate rise of 1.5 per cent is proposed, in line with the Victorian Government’s rate cap. This will support efforts to maintain critical community infrastructure while continuing to provide quality services.
