The City of Victor Harbor finalised its 2018/19 budget process last night with the adoption of its annual business plan, budget and rating policy.

The $35.5 million budget aims to assist Victor Harbor maintain its position as South Australia’s premier coastal town, at the same time as meeting the community’s service level expectations.

The budget consists of a capital works program worth $8.1 million, and $27.4 million operating expenditure resulting in a deficit of $580,000. It provides important investment in Victor Harbor’s future and makes provision for a number of exciting projects and initiatives.

Key projects to be undertaken in 2018/19 include Stage 2 of the Mainstreet Precinct Master Plan which will transform the northern end of Ocean Street, upgrade of Victor Harbor’s premier playground at George T Fisher Reserve, a program of new footpaths, commencement of works for the Adelaide Road Footpath and Crossing Master Plan, and facilitation of the 2018 council elections in November.

“The 2018/19 budget delivers services, programs and infrastructure projects that aim to meet the needs of our community, at the same time as providing ratepayers value for money,” said City of Victor Harbor Mayor Graham Philp.

“This budget will allow council to continue delivering the 100 plus services and functions for the community, at the same time as undertaking major infrastructure projects that will contribute to Victor Harbor’s revitalisation.”

“Things are happening in Victor, and investment in projects like the highly anticipated second stage of the Mainstreet Precinct Upgrade, which has secured 50% funding from the SA Government, are key to the development of our regional hub.”

The City of Victor Harbor will raise $21.6 million through council rates, and the average increase across all rating categories is 3.5%. For residential ratepayers this will mean an average increase of $67 compared to last year.

“Over the coming year council will continue to work hard to identify efficiencies and cost saving measures. We are also set to work with the new SA Government as rate capping is introduced for our communities’.”

Mayor Philp thanked the community members and groups who took the time to provide council with their feedback during the consultation period.

“On behalf of elected members and staff, thank you to everyone who took the time to provide council with their thoughts on the draft Annual Business Plan and Budget. Your keen interest and contribution to our budget preparations is highly valued,” said Mayor Philp.
