Revenue and Financing Policy


Purpose

The purpose of the Revenue and Financing Policy is to set out how Council proposes to fund the operating and capital expenditure of the activities it undertakes. The policy also demonstrates how Council has complied with section 101(3) of the Local Government Act.  Council’s current approach is to review this policy every three years.
