Mildura Rural City Council 2023-24 Draft Budget

Mildura Rural City Council’s Draft Budget for the 2023-24 Financial Year focuses on continuing to deliver for our community. Our proposed Budget sets out approximately $149.22 million in expenditure. Much of this is committed to funding community services, facilities and infrastructure to support local residents and regional growth in line with our 2021-25 Council Plan.


In 2023-24 rates are proposed to increase by 3.5% in line with the State Government’s Rate Capping policy. Council has worked to cut the amount by which rates increase each year to reduce the burden on property owners. It is anticipated Council will collect a total of $86.35 million through municipal rates, including waste charges.Budget Breakdown
