Gold Coasters asked to shape City’s budget for 2021-22

15 February 2021

Gold Coast locals are being urged to weigh in on their priorities for the city, with community consultation for the City’s 2021-22 budget now open. 

Mayor Tom Tate said ratepayers and residents had the opportunity to shape the City’s spend for the following year. 

“Last year we took a ‘back to basics’ approach to our budget to protect residents and businesses in a pandemic affected year. 

“By remaining fiscally responsible, we ensured our lifestyle on the Gold Coast was preserved while continuing to deliver essential services, invest in local infrastructure and maintain community assets.

“From more shade sails at your local playground, streetscaping to a continued investment into our local road network, we want to know what the City should prioritise in 2021-22.

“I encourage all members of our community to take the time to have their say this year as we were unable to conduct our usual consultation last year due to Covid-19,” he said. 

This year’s budget survey has been emailed to those who have opted into the rates database.

Residents and ratepayers can also visit to have their say. 

Community consultation runs until 5pm 28 February 2021.
