Council Budget 2022–23

We have prepared our Council Budget 2022–23 in line with our commitment to sustainable budgeting, responsible financial management and the Victorian Government’s rate cap for 2022–23. Our budget also supports our community vision and priority themes in the Boroondara Community Plan 2021–2031.

Our budget aims to maintain and improve services and infrastructure, as well as deliver projects and services that are valued by our community.

We predict that this budget will have a surplus of $6.61 million. This is an increase of $10,000 from the 2021–22 forecast.

Our budget is largely based on a return to normal activity levels after COVID-19. However, we will continue to closely monitor any new COVID-19 developments.

In 2022–23, we will continue to invest in the delivery of services to our community, including:

  • libraries
  • health and wellbeing services
  • family services
  • youth services
  • active ageing services.

We will also continue to invest in our infrastructure assets. This includes renewal works and new works for:

  • roads
  • footpaths and bicycle paths
  • drainage
  • recreational, leisure and community facilities
  • parks, open spaces and streetscapes
  • buildings.

As our city starts to recover from the impacts of COVID-19, this budget will make sure that Boroondara remains vibrant and inclusive, and a city that our community feels proud to live in.
