A Message from the Acting Mayor
Every capital project approved has been prioritised through practical and proactive asset management planning which will ensure our infrastructure remains sound, and that we can continue to provide high levels of service, while minimising the financial burden for the future. Council’s focus is to satisfy the expectations of our community while providing a positive long-term outcome for the region.
In the Whitsunday region, rates and levies account for over 70 percent of our total operating revenue. Councillors do not take rate increase decisions lightly and last year’s budget was the first general residential rate increase in six years.
I’m proud to say that Council will continue to provide one of the most generous pensioner rates concessions in Queensland.
I look forward to working with my fellow Councillors, CEO Rod Ferguson, and our Executive Leadership team in delivering the 2022/23 Whitsunday Regional Council budget for our community.
