Get involved with Hume Council's Long Term Financial Planning

The opportunity to get involved in Hume City Council's Long Term Financial Planning 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's Long Term Financial Plan.

Whilst using the Budget Simulator you will be presented with and indicative Council’s overall annual expenditure figure.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 that can be influenced:
• Road, Traffic & Transport Networks
• Community Engagement
• Economic Development
• Libraries, Arts & Culture
• Waste Management & 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).
