Draft Budget 2021-2022


Wodonga Council has endorsed its Draft Budget for 2021-2022 for public exhibition and encourages feedback from the community.

Following a zero rate rise last year, the draft budget includes a 1.5 per cent rate rise, which means that on average, households face an increase cost of about 1 dollar per week.

This proposed rate rise is in line with the Victorian Government rate cap.

Significant projects in the budget include the following

  • Baranduda Fields
    $5.2 million to continue developing the first stage, which includes two turf soccer fields, a soccer pavilion, an AFL ground, two netball courts, shared paths, change rooms and public toilets
  • Converting street lighting to energy efficient LED
    More than $1 million investment in more than 1000 LED lights, which are more energy efficient and require less maintenance
  • Transformational opportunities
    $300,000 to progress transformational opportunities, such as Gateway Island masterplan actions and improving the Bonegilla township
  • Wodonga hills
    $100,000 for barbecue facilities, shelters, toilets, seating and walking and bike trails
  • Energy efficiency
    $30,000 to improve environmental sustainability and energy efficiency at various council-owned premises – work expected to pay for itself within five years
