Consultation has concluded

Council has released its Draft Budget for 2017/18, allowing us to continue delivering a broad range of services, infrastructure maintenance and new projects that will strengthen our City.

A $58.4 million investment in capital works features a wide range of projects and initiatives to support the Kingston community.

Budget highlights

  • Maintaining vital community infrastructure including road and footpath repairs ($6.7 million), drainage works ($3.4 million) and streetlight replacements ($2.9 million). These vital works are part of Council’s ongoing and significant investment in community asset renewal.
  • Major redevelopment of Mordialloc’s Ben Kavanagh Reserve with $3 million allocated this year to continue work on a new double-storey pavilion and upgrades around the park.
  • Continuing with the Bay Trail project to provide a shared walking/bike path from Mentone to Mordialloc, with Council’s contribution of $1.6 million in this year’s budget.
  • Providing connected communities, learning and development through the $1 million book stock purchases for our libraries.
  • Being well governed and planning for the future through a $3 million new depot development.
  • Promoting an active and healthy community through major investments in local parks and sporting facilities to strengthen local sporting clubs and encourage greater participation. Projects include:
    • G.R. Bricker athletics track upgrade ($1.1 million)
    • Edithvale Life Saving Club redevelopment ($1.6 million)
    • Cliff Sambell pavilion development at the Gerry Green Reserve ($1.4 million)
