Knox City Council is committed to planning for the future of Knox. Council has worked in partnership with the community to develop the Knox Vision: Our City, Our Future which shows us what our future could and should look like, and the City Plan 2013-17 (incorporating the Council Plan) which tells us how we will get there.
As part of its planning process, Knox City Council also reviews its Long Term Financial Forecast and prepares an Annual Budget (including an Annual Plan) and Strategic Resource Plan. Knox's Long Term Financial Forecast outlines the resources required for the directions established in the Vision and City Plan and the Strategic Resource Plan is a high level summary of this for the four years 2016-17 to 2019-20. The Annual Budget specifies the resources required to fund Council’s services and initiatives over the next 12 months that contribute to achieving City Plan objectives.
At its Ordinary Meeting of Council held on 28 June 2016, Council adopted the 2016-17 Annual Budget (and the Strategic Resource Plan 2016-17 to 2019-20).
