What does Public Exhibition mean?

    When Council puts something on public exhibition it means that anyone can look at and comment on it. By putting our Operational Plan and Fees and Charges on exhibition, we are giving the community the chance to look at them and give us feedback before they’re finalised. The comments provided by the community help us understand if there is something we need to add or change before the plans are adopted.

    Why are these documents important?

    Delivery Program 2017-21

    The Delivery Program sets out the seven Community Outcomes that Council is working towards, and the main things we will do over the four years from 2017 to 2021 to help deliver them.

    Operational Plan 2019-20

    Our Operational Plan is embedded within the Delivery Program. It sets out the activities, works program and budget for the period from 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020, and is made up of the 2019-20 actions and schedules.  

    Fees and charges 2019-20

    The Fees and Charges lists all the rates, fees and charges relating to the services Council provides; including cemeteries, children’s services, applications, facility hires, animal control and so on.
