The City of Marion is seeking your ideas and feedback regarding its Draft Annual Business Plan and Budget 2024-2025. This process provides you with the opportunity to have your say on the level of service and activities undertaken by the Council before the final budget is adopted. Community consultation commences Wednesday 1 May 2024 and closes Tuesday 21 May 2024 at 11:59 pm.

Background

The Draft Annual Business Plan and Budget 2024-2025 shows how Council proposes to manage its annual $113 million budget to deliver quality services while maintaining close to $1.2 billion in assets across the council area.

Additionally, Council proposes to invest $33.8m in capital works including community and sporting facilities, playgrounds, and capital work programs including stormwater upgrades, footpaths, and road upgrades. This total proposed spend is made up of $15.2m for the renewal of assets and $18.6m for new and upgraded assets.

In developing the Draft Annual Business Plan and Budget 2024-25 and Council's Long term Financial Plan we have been mindful of current market conditions and developed these Plans to ensure project delivery in a financially sustainable way. Considerable work has been undertaken to also set a rate increase that balances the impact on our community without compromising on operational service or capital project delivery, while also maintaining a long term financially sustainable position for the City of Marion.

Council is proposing a 4.8% average rate increase for the coming year. Property owners may experience variation in that figure due to changing property values which are outside of the Council's control.

Council is keeping rates as low as possible whilst delivering necessary projects that will deliver much-needed upgrades to community facilities and improve the environmental sustainability of our community.
