The 2021-22 Annual Budget outlines the Shire’s key service and project priorities for the year ahead and it is a pleasure to share these priorities with our community.
Financial year 2021-22 is an exciting time for the Shire. This will be the year the Council endorses the revised 2021-2031 Strategic Community Plan and 2021-2024 Corporate Business Plan. Developed in consultation with the Council, staff and the community, these documents prioritise the Shire’s direction over the next four to ten years and drive the Shire’s annual and long-term financial planning. We look forward to sharing the Council’s vision with the community.
With a focus on the Shire’s 2021-22 financial position, the Council adopted a 0.00% increase to the rate in the dollar for the second consecutive year, displaying the Council’s commitment in supporting our community economically recover through the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Shire’s capital works programs, all infrastructure, including facilities will continue to be maintained to a high standard, with a capital investment commitment of $10 million, including $3.8 million to fund upgrades and renewal of roads, paths and drainage. Key capital project information, such as the exciting development of the Dalyellup Skate Park, will be shared via the Shire’s website in the coming weeks. We look forward to show casing these projects with our community.
The Council are confident the 2021-22 budget will enable the Shire of Capel to ensure that community needs are met, and service delivery is not compromised.
We look forward to supporting our community through the coming year, with a commitment to improving the lives of every individual within the Shire of Capel.
