Council shares 10-year district roadmap

Grant District Council is opening the draft Long Term Financial Plan 2023-2032 to the community for feedback.

Council’s chief executive Officer Darryl Whicker said the Long Term Financial Plan (LTFP) is similar to, but is less detailed than an annual budget.

“It is designed to ensure council has sufficient funds available to provide services and maintain infrastructure over a 10-year period,” he said.

“This year’s plan includes a proposed $11m upgrade to the saleyard facility, which is subject to the receipt of both Federal and State Government funding.

“While the current plan drives council’s long-term objectives, it is worthwhile noting this plan is an ever-evolving document.

“Updates will be made to assumptions within the plan to adapt to the ever-changing needs of the community.”

Mr Whicker said the Long Term Financial Plan was developed in accordance with the Local Government Act 1999 and linked to council’s Strategic Management Plan 2020-2030 and Asset Management Plans.

“Community members are encouraged to review the Long Term Financial Plan 2023-2032 and provide their valuable input,” he said.

“Feedback provided from the public will be incorporated with comments from council’s Audit and Risk Committee.”
