Chief Executive Officer Carl Cowie encourages the community to submit their thoughts, suggestions and priorities for the coming year. “This is a great opportunity for residents, businesses, sporting and community groups to communicate their future aspirations for the Shire by contributing to the Annual Budget process. “The Shire is committed to building on a sound understanding of community needs and expectations through engaging in a responsive, open and accountable manner. Your thoughts and suggestions will help us guide the direction of the peninsula’s future. “This is particularly important for the 2017/18 Annual Budget following on from Council elections and in the context of the rate capping constraints,” said Mr Cowie.
