The City of Casey’s key strategic documents have been developed which guide our future planning and allocation of the budget to deliver community services, initiatives, and projects.
These documents include our:
- Draft Council Plan 2021-2025 – Year 2 Review
- Draft Annual Action Plan 2022/23
- Draft Capital Works Plan for 22/23
- Draft Budget 2022/2023
- Draft 10-year Finance Plan
This year’s draft budget totals $558.64 million, with a $433.19 million operational budget and a $125.45 million Capital Works Program.
The Draft Budget 2022/23 balances the needs and expectations of the community, while addressing the financial constraints and challenges brought about, amongst other factors, by State Government mandated landfill levy increases, a 1.75 per cent rates-cap, plus the economic effects of COVID-19 disruptions.
Through the Draft Budget 2022/23 we are allocating:
- $42 million towards child, youth and family services
- $51 million towards waste management
- $22 million towards community connections and health and wellbeing
- $19 million toward road maintenance
- $12 million towards sports and leisure
The budget sees another significant investment in the Capital Works Program, demonstrating Council’s commitment to providing the community with the services and infrastructure it needs, within the constraints of tighter economic realities.
Through our capital works program we are directing:
- $29.1 million into roads
- $4.5 million into footpaths and cycleways
- $10.8 million into drainage
- $50.1 million into recreational, leisure and community facilities
- $4.6 million into parks, open space and streetscapes
- $12 million investment into business and digital transformation to improve our customers’ experience
