Final preparations go ahead for council budget

THE South Burnett Regional Council are preparing to deliver the 2019/20 budget.

Mayor Keith Campbell said the council's proposed final budget was being considered, prior to the budget adoption later this month.

"We know this budget will not be easy for anyone, but we also know this budget is necessary to enable council to be financially responsible to our ratepayers,” he said.

The council are looking at a 1.9 per cent increase to the income from the general rate.

"My fellow councillors and I have worked with the senior management staff to produce a budget with as fair an approach as possible, given the circumstances council faces this coming year,” Cr Campbell said.
