Get involved with the Hume City Council Budget

The opportunity to get involved in Hume City Council's Budget for the 2020/21 financial year has now closed.

Information received via the Budget Simulator will be included with feedback from a range of consultation activities to help inform the Council Plan and Budget for 2020/21. Community members can have further input when submissions on the draft Council Plan and Budget are accepted from May to June 2020.

The Council Plan and Budget can be accessed on the Hume City Council website following Council adoption in late June 2020.

Whilst using the Budget Simulator you will be presented with Council’s overall annual expenditure figure for 2019/20.This covers all Council expenditure necessary to meet legislative requirements and provide good governance and includes internal costs such as fleet and equipment, accounting, information technology and human resources.

However, within the Budget Simulator you are only being asked to provide feedback on services that you have direct experience with, as follows:
• Road, Traffic & Transport Networks
• Community Engagement
• Economic Development
• Libraries, Arts & Culture
• Waste, Resource Recovery & City Appearance
• Parks, Open Space & Environment
• Community Services
• City Planning & Development

The sum of the expenditure that you allocate to the individual service areas will not equal the Council's overall budget expenditure.

Please note: a number of Council services in the Budget Simulator generate or attract revenue via fees and charges, grants or external funding which offsets against expenditure. The Budget Simulator shows expenditure for services only, not net (expenditure minus revenue).

Information received via the Budget Simulator will be included with feedback from a range of consultation activities to help inform the Council Plan and Budget for 2020/21.
