Annual Business Plan & Budget
Council adopted its Annual Business Plan & Budget at a special meeting held on Wednesday 27th June 2012 following consideration of written submissions, new and revised information and other information that it considers relevant.
Budget deliberations comprise two important areas:
- Capital and Major Projects
The operational budget concerns those items that maintain the day to day operations of Council to ensure core services can be carried out. The operational budget includes (but is not limited to) items such as salary and wages, elected members expenses, fees and charges, subscriptions, training, insurance, contractual services, plant & machinery operating, materials, power and telephone. The Operational Budget is compiled into function areas, which meet the requirements of the Local Government Act 1999.
Capital and Major Projects
A list of major projects and capital works including all submissions from Ratepayer/ Progress Associations and the Ceduna Business and Tourism Association is compiled and provided to the Administration and Finance Committee. The Committee reviews the list and eliminates those requests that do not meet the strategic direction of council in accordance with the District Council of Ceduna Strategic Plan but, allows where appropriate, the inclusion of items for good governance or management such as future cash flows, occupational health and safety and plant renewal.
This list is then costed by Council staff and presented to the aforementioned Administration & Finance Committee. This committee comprises six elected members, and makes recommendations on the draft budget for consideration by the full Council.
The budget is a public document and is available for download below, alternatively a copy is available form the Council administration office for viewing or purchase.
