Budget - Connecting our Communities

2016-17 Budget

Roads are set for a major funding injection in Isaac Regional Council’s 2016-17 Budget themed ‘Connecting our Communities.’

Mayor Anne Baker said Council will invest $36 million into new capital, with approximately 56% earmarked for roads projects.

“Our key priority this year is core infrastructure that connects and services our communities, businesses and industry, which is highlighted by our significant investment in roads and drainage.

“Isaac is a region transitioning from the unprecedented mining investment boom, to a community evolving with challenging economic conditions.

“Council has met these challenges head on with a financially responsible plan, which has enabled the general rates revenue increase to be limited to 1% across all residential categories.”
