Campbelltown Council held an extraordinary meeting on Tuesday night to give the green light endorsed to a $318 million budget for 2021-22.
The document outlines a $128 million capital works program to build, maintain and enhance Campbelltown’s infrastructure.
“Our delivery program and operational plan showcases how Campbelltown is moving forward over the next 12 months and some of the many exciting projects that are on the way,” says mayor George Brticevic.
“Along with the big ticket items, it also contains the day to day tasks that our community values such as road and building maintenance,” he said.
The draft budget includes $25.5 million to be spent on pedestrian and road-related infrastructure.
Previous commitments to the delivery of key grant and council funded facilities, such as the Campbelltown Billabong Parklands and the Campbelltown Sports and Health Centre of Excellence, is also reflected in this year’s plan.
As part of council’s ongoing commitment to delivering fun and exciting family-friendly events across the city, $700,000 has been allocated for community events and activations.
Almost $5 million will be invested into purchasing new plant equipment, library books, playground equipment.
Other projects included in the 2021-22 budget include:
