The 2022-23 Livingstone Shire Council budget was officially adopted on 26 July 2022. The primary focus of the 2022-23 budget is on maintaining community assets and a high level of service, while keeping rate increases under CPI.
Council’s budget has been carefully considered and is the combination of numerous months work by all councillors and key staff, with the support of the wider organisation. It is informed, in part, by various Council decisions over the course of the year as well as previously adopted strategies.
Residents were also consulted in the development of the budget in several ways, either in person or online. The valuable feedback received from the community was taken into consideration by Councillors in the final development of the budget.
