Mayoral Column

I’m pleased to report that Council’s 2019/2020 Operational Plan was adopted by Council at its meeting on Wednesday, 12 June 2019.

Every year, Council’s Draft Operational Plan is put on public exhibition as part of the community consultation process, and we appreciate all community input and feedback.

This year, Council introduced a number of initiatives to attract additional feedback in relation to the Draft Operational Plan, so it was pleasing to see a significant increase in the number of people who made submissions.

Building on our Community Strategic Plan, the 2019/2020 Operational Plan includes Council’s budget, proposed projects and programs to be undertaken, as well as information about rates, fees and charges, estimated income and expenditure, and the capital works program for 2019/2020.

The adopted Operational Plan is also in accordance with Council’s ‘Fit For The Future’ commitments endorsed by the State Government on 23 August 2017.

We are now working closely with our staff to ensure the successful implementation of the 2019/2020 Operational Plan.

Later this year, we will also report back to our community via the Annual Report on what has been achieved during the 2018/2019 financial year. Our continued commitment to the Hawkesbury community is to deliver on the actions contained within our Operational Plan, and to keep you informed of this progress.

The 2019/2020 Operational Plan is available on Council’s website www.hawkesbury.nsw.gov.au or in hard copy at Council’s Administration Building at 366 George Street, Windsor. If you have any enquiries regarding the Plan, please contact our Customer Service team on 4560 4444.
