West Coast residents and ratepayers are being encouraged to submit items for consideration by West Coast Council as part of their 2016-2017 budget deliberations.
“This is a great opportunity for people to put forward their ideas about capital works or other projects,” West Coast Mayor Phil Vickers said. “All submissions will be reviewed and taken into consideration so that we can attempt to balance competing priorities given our limited available funds before finalising the budget for next year.”
To ensure a considered, balanced budget is adopted West Coast councillors will be touring the West Coast on Thursday to view potential areas and projects for budget items.
‘It is important that as representatives of all our communities we have a clear understanding of where potential budget items will impact,” Mayor Vickers said.
Public submissions for priority budget items will be accepted until Wednesday 25 May, with more information available at Council’s website. Councillors will then assess and review proposed items before adopting the final 2016-2017 budget in late June.
