The Annual Budget shows what the Council expects to spend and receive within each service area within a particular year.  This process also determines the Rate multiplier for commercial rates within the county or town council area.

The Council’s Annual Budget is normally prepared in November/December for the following year.

The Finance Unit is responsible for the overall preparation of the estimates for the following year, in consultation with each Department of the Council.
