Dollars and sense: Our community’s priorities for 2022 to 2023


What do you think the priorities should be in Wodonga’s budget for 2022 to 2023?

We’re starting the conversation earlier this year so we can hear what the community thinks should be prioritised in the budget.

We’ll then use that feedback to help build a draft budget.

That draft budget will then be taken back to the community for further feedback.

Why is the budget important?

The budget outlines how we will deliver services and programs to our community. It covers services like managing waste, upgrading our infrastructure, community facilities and parks, operating our libraries, recreation centres, events and services to people at all stages of life.

Like with any household budget, there are essentials, such as bread, milk and eggs, and there are constraints. Unfortunately, we can’t buy everything we want!

So let’s work together and focus on “what are the priorities?”

If the budget was $100, where would you prioritise spending? Use the tool below to allocate where you think the priorities are.

The Shopping List

Capital works
This is building or upgrading a new asset or space such as Hyphen library gallery

Family services
This includes Wodonga’s preschools and maternal child health service

This is an essential because it covers the running of council

Roads, Parks and Gardens
This covers the upkeep of our roads, parks and gardens

Planning and infrastructure
This covers building and planning and outdoor operations

Arts, culture and events
This covers the gallery, The Cube and events ranging from citizenship ceremonies to entertainment

Community services and engagement
This covers Wodonga’s library and community centres

Environment and waste
This covers Wodonga’s waste transfer station, the Halve Waste program and work to make our city more sustainable

Debt servicing
This is an essential because it is the repayment of interest and principal amount on debt.
