In the May Boroondara Bulletin we showcased the major projects being funded in this year’s Budget 2019-20.
But where else are your rates spent? The table below shows for every $100 of expenditure where each $1 goes:
capital works and priority projects
environment and waste management
health, aged, community and family services
parks, gardens and sportsgrounds
library, arts and cultural services
planning and building
local laws enforcement
roads, footpaths, safety and drainage
communications and customer service
engineering and traffic
leisure, recreation and civic centres*
rates and property services
The figures include an allocation of corporate services, governance, risk management, building maintenance and public lighting across these service areas.
*Excludes operating expenditure for five externally managed recreation centres.
