The Alexandrina Council has proposed its lowest ever rate increase of 1.2 % for the financial year ahead.
Council has released its draft Annual Business Plan and Budget 2020-21 for community consultation, welcome feedback until consultation closes 6 July 2020.
It reflects the need to help the region rebuild and recover from the impacts of COVID-19, whilst also responding to the financial pressure being felt within the community.
Major projects outlined in the plan include the Coorong Quays Wastewater Transition, Strathalbyn Streetscape Revitalisation (artist deptiction above) and the Goolwa Sporting Complex stage 1.
Alexandrina Mayor Keith Parkes said he encourages people to have a say on the Council’s My Say site or to get in touch with council. He said he is happy to meet up with constituents if they would like clarification on the plan.
