Council worked hard to deliver the lowest possible rate rise to its customers despite rising costs and the impact of de-amalgamation.
The average ratepayer will pay little more than a dollar a week extra and will continue to receive quality services and infrastructure.
This budget delivers schemes which encourage investment and creates jobs. This will support the long-term economic success of the region.
