At its meeting on Monday 24 April 2017, Council resolved to release the draft Community & Council Plan 2017-21 and the proposed 2017-18 Annual Budget for public comment.
The draft Community & Council Plan outlines a long-term vision for the Knox community, shared medium-term goals and strategies to help us achieve that vision, and the targets and initiatives Council has committed to over the next four years.
To deliver on this plan, Council has also developed a draft Strategic Resource Plan (PDF) that outlines the financial and non-financial resources needed, and the proposed Budget which allocates the resources required for the first year of the plan. The proposed 2017-18 Annual Budget has been prepared on the basis of the application of an average rate cap fixed by general Order.
Please view the proposed 2017-18 Annual Budget and Addendum below, and the draft Community & Council Plan 2017-21.
