Council plans budget

WHITSUNDAY Regional Council will hand down its next budget later this month.

Mayor Mike Brunker said this week that budgets were always tough and noted that Council had a big debt.

He said this budget would be infrastructure-led as there was a lot of catching up to do.

“It is well-known that we need three sewerage treatment plants and two water treatment plants,” Cr Brunker said.

Rate increases would depend on the amount of subsidy Council could obtain from the State Government for infrastructure programs, according to Cr Brunker.

The budget for 2010/2011 is expected to be adopted at Council's meeting on June 24.

Councillors have been meeting this week and will meet again in the next two weeks to discuss the budget.
