A Message from the Mayor

Published: Thursday, 26 July 2018 at 9:48:00 AM

Dear Vincent ratepayer,

This year’s budget is even more community focused because you told us what is important to you.

We have embraced your feedback to deliver projects that ensure Vincent is the place you want it to be.

The ideas you gave us during last year’s Imagine Vincent community engagement have driven the Council’s priorities that have shaped this budget. We continue to prioritise parks and public open space, trees and greening, safer and more welcoming streets and vibrant town centres.

Our flagship projects include North Perth Common - an exciting new heart for the North Perth town centre, an iconic new public artwork to be funded by developer contributions, solar panels for City of Vincent buildings and making the most of Banks Reserve’s natural beauty.

At the same time, we will provide high quality core services, like keeping our roads and footpaths in top shape, and drive innovation in the way we do business, such as offering online lodgement of planning applications.

Waste reduction is also in the spotlight, with a new target of zero waste to landfill by 2028.

We believe this budget strikes the right balance between delivering great outcomes in our community while maintaining one of the lowest rates of any metropolitan local government.

Fees and charges also remain low with some reduced fees at Beatty Park Leisure Centre, including free spectator entry.

This budget is a collaboration between community and Council and we are excited to see the next year unfold.

- Mayor Emma Cole
