Latrobe City Council

"We look forward to meeting with the community on Monday 8 April from 6pm to 7:30pm at the Nambur Wariga Room, Latrobe City Council Headquarters 141 Commercial Road Morwell.
"We are in a challenging economic and social climate, where service delivery and major capital project work needs to be undertaken with the capped rate rise of 2.5%. Our draft Budget shows restraint without compromising the quality and range of services that our community has come to expect."
"The Draft Budget balances out this unavoidable increase in fees with a continuation of the provision of significant capital investment in our City."
"The Draft Budget reflects Councilís commitment to deliver the same services to the community against a background of rate capping."
