It's Time To Have Your Say On Griffith City Council's Budget

Griffith City Council is calling for public feedback on its draft budget after it was adopted at last week’s Council Meeting.

Griffith Mayor John Dal Broi invites residents to attend a public information session on Thursday 26 April, 5.30pm at Griffith City Library.

Cr Dal Broi said, as with previous budgets, the documents detail the resources required over the next year to fund the wide range of services provided to the community.

“It outlines where we plan to invest in infrastructure, buildings and operational assets, as well as funding proposals for a range of projects.”

Cr Dal Broi is urging all community members to take a look and provide feedback.

“Our city is in an increasingly strong economic position and that’s due to solid growth and expansion of local industries”

- Cr Dal Broi

“The aim is to capitalise on our strong financial position so we can invest in large-scale infrastructure and capital projects in the coming years to enhance the lives of residents in Griffith and surrounding villages.”
