Draft Annual Business Plan 2017/2018 for Public Consultation

The City of Port Lincoln released its Draft Annual Business Plan 2017/2018 for public comment from 4 May to 9 June 2017.

The Public Consultation period closed 5pm on Friday 9 June 2017 with 178 submissions received.  Council will consider all the feedback received before finalising the Annual Business Plan for 2017/2018.

The Draft Annual Business Plan has been developed to ensure consistency with Council's vision and is based on commitment to continuity of services and maintenance and completion of capital renewal programs as priorities that are sustainably funded.

The Council continues to work with increased governance, compliance and regulatory requirements with the planning for 2017/2018 includes a number of significant projects:

  • delivery of the $4.4 million expansion of the Port Lincoln Leisure Centre, fully funded by the Commonwealth Community Development Grant Program
  • replacement of the London Street Bridge, a $4.4 million project partly funded by a 50% partnership with the Bridges Renewal Fund
  • continued Road Reseal works of $550,000 per year, in a program planned to continue over the next nine years
  • stormwater project priorities including the design works to address flood risks in Liverpool Street and significant drainage works at Kaye Drive
  • redevelopment of the Skate Park including new street skating area and equipment.

The projects, programs and services proposed in the Draft Annual Business Plan are to be funded with an increase in rates revenue as follows:

  • revenue from the General Rate, 'rate in the dollar', is to increase by 4.4%, with an average increase to existing properties of 3.2%
  • the Fixed Charge portion of the General Rate is to increase by $10 (to $425) per property
  • the Waste and Recycling Charge is to increase by $7.4% - mainly due to the significiant increases in the State Government Waste Levy charges.

Any questions regarding Council's Annual Business Plan can be directed to Manager Finance & Business, Mr David Levey on 8621 2326.
