Operational Plan 2020/21
Council has prepared an Operational Plan 2020/21 which sets out the activities and infrastructure projects, budget, rating structure and fees and charges for the 2020/21 financial year.
Council plays a significant role within the community as demonstrated by the draft Operational Plan 2020/21 which includes Council’s largest ever operational budget of almost $180 million, Council’s capital works program, draft fees and charges and rating structure.
Key aspects of the plan include the delivery of a $56.6 million capital works budget and the continuation of major infrastructure projects which include the Maitland Regional Athletics Centre, Maitland Regional Sports Hub expansion and upgrade, Mount Vincent Waste Transfer Station and the Maitland Administration Centre.
The Operational Plan 2020/21 guides the delivery of Council services for the period and includes:
- Management of Council services including aquatics, community facilities, events, Maitland Regional Art Gallery, libraries, waste and recycling, compliance, development planning and more
- Proposed fees and charges for sport and recreation facilities, community hall and room hire pool entry and programs, waste disposal, development assessment, inspection services, rates and more
- A continuing program of construction and maintenance on our roads, footpaths, cycleways, drains and bridges
- Statement of Revenue (including 2020/21 Fees and Charges, and draft Statement of Rating Structure) – noting that in 2020/21 Council will discontinue the current Second Tier (Mall/Levee) of the CBD Marketing and Promotion Special Rate.
