The Maribyrnong Council’s economic vision for the next decade has been formally adopted following feedback from the community.
The ‘long-term financial plan’ adopted at last week’s Council meeting considers the current economic situation and future projections to support the delivery of priority projects, initiatives and programs over the next 10 years.
The plan will assist the Council in its long-term and financial planning to provide services, maintain assets and achieve strategic goals in a financially sustainable manner.
It was adopted after receiving more than 335 comments from the community.
Resident feedback focused on supporting increased spending in areas such as town halls, early years, health and wellness and youth services, as well as parks, open spaces, waste management, active transportation, and open space planning.
The Council is required by Local Government Act 2020 to provide a financial plan covering a 10-year period.
