Snowy Monaro Regional Council budget plan

Snowy Monaro Regional Council has outlined how they will be serving the community within their 2018 Operational Plan and Budget and are now seeking comment from the community.

The suite of documents, known as the Integrated Planning and Reporting (IPR) documents, are now on public exhibition and are made up of the 2018 Operational Plan (includes 2018 Budget); Revenue Policy (including pricing Policy on Rates and Annual Charges) and the Schedule of Fees and Charges

Snowy Monaro Regional Council general manager, Joseph Vescio said staff, in conjunction with the administrator, have developed these documents that incorporate the needs and aspirations of the council area.

“The 2018 Operational Plan is also underpinned by a number of key outcomes including the consolidation of the three former councils’ IT systems into one network and the delivery of the $14 million Stronger Communities Fund – Major Projects,” Mr Vescio said.

The IPR documents are on public exhibition for a 28-day period until 12pm Thursday, June 8, 2017.

Council encourages all community members to review the draft documents and provide feedback.

“The public exhibition period is an opportunity for the community to provide feedback on areas of concern.

“By participating in this review, you will be informing the development of our IPR documents and ensuring that the views of our community are considered.

“Council will consider each submission and required amendments will be re-presented to council for adoption prior to June 30,” Mr Vescio said.

The IPR suite of documents can be viewed via council’s website www.snowymonaro.nsw.gov.au/570/Public-Exhibition or in hard copy at Council’s Berridale, Bombala, Cooma and Jindabyne offices and various other locations across the region.

A written submission titled “Submission Draft IPR Documents 2018” can be forwarded to Snowy Monaro Regional Council.

The public exhibition period is an opportunity for the community to provide feedback on areas of concern.
