Operational Plan, Fees and Charges and Revenue Policy adopted: At the extraordinary Council meeting on June 30 the Operational Plan, Fees and Charges and Revenue Policy for 2021-22 along with a new tariff structure for Palerang communities water and sewerage schemes and the QPRC Waste Strategy were adopted. At the meeting, some changes were made to the Operational Plan to improve our budget position including the removal or deferral of some capital and operational projects. A proposed $700,000 cut to local road renewal, proposed in recognition of a significant amount of work being undertaken with disaster recovery funding, was not proceeded with. This increased the total transport budget for 2021-22 to more than $23m. The Smart City Working Group projects, Queanbeyan Honour Walk expansion, customer satisfaction survey and QPRC website upgrades were put on hold. The Operational Plan includes a capital works program of $179m which is fully funded by a combination of capital grants, developer contributions, new loans and reserve funds.
