Glen Innes Severn Council invites community feedback on its Draft 2024-25 Operational Plan and Budget.

The Operational Plan and Budget outlines Council’s proposed initiatives and financial allocations for the upcoming financial year.

During this time, you can submit your feedback online through Council’s Have Your Say page. Written submissions are also welcome and can be sent via email or mail until 4.30 PM on Friday, 14 June 2024.

The Operational Plan and Budget guides Council’s delivery of important services like roads and footpaths, parks, ranger services, development services, waste and recycling, sport and recreational facilities, community and economic development, cultural exhibitions, events and more.

Key highlights of the draft Operational Plan include:

  • Regional roads and transport
  • Commencement of CCTV installations over several years
  • Urban landscaping
  • Drainage and water network upgrades
  • Parks and recreation upgrades
