Draft Budget Consultation 2023/24

Kingborough Mayor, Paula Wriedt today announced the start of six weeks of community consultation on the 2023/24 Council Budget.

“Every year, Kingborough Council plans how we can best service the needs of our community, through developing our budget,” Cr Wriedt said.

“Demands grow every year for new and existing services and we need to create and maintain our built infrastructure and look after our many natural assets that benefit the community.

“We understand that households are under increasing pressures due to the rising cost of living.

“Council is also experiencing increased costs.

“This Draft Budget aims to meet the community’s expectations by ensuring staff have the resources to deliver a range of services and projects that benefit our community.

“This year, Council is proposing a 4.5% residential general rate increase along with a 7% commercial and industrial rate increase.

“Kingborough remains a low rating Council among Greater Hobart Councils and this draft budget is centred around maintaining this.

“Budget feedback can be provided to Council until 14 May 2023 through a survey, written or emailed submissions

“All feedback will be given to Councillors as they consider the draft budget.

“Council will formally decide on the draft budget at the 13 June 2023 Council Meeting.”
