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.
