Draft Moreland Council Budget 2020 2021


At the latest council meeting, Wednesday 13 May 2020, Councillors endorsed the Draft Budget 2020/2021.

Last year we heard from many in our community about what we should spend our money on. We created a budget simulator tool and hosted community-based pop-ups throughout November and December to gather your feedback.

We listened and incorporated that it into the Draft Budget 2020/2021.

Now the Draft Budget 2020 2021 has been endorsed by Council the Moreland community are now welcomed to have their say via our engagement platform, Conversations Moreland.

Submissions on the draft Budget are open until Thursday 11 June 2020.
