Glen Eira City Council Reveal Draft Budget 2013/14 – Open For Public Submissions

By Matt Hurlston

The Glen Eira city council has released its 2013/14 draft budget to the public, which is open for residents to provide feedback to until June 6th .

Aspects of the budget focus on continued sustainability within the area, including converting all street lights to low-energy, high illumination technology – which would save the council approximately $250,000 a year in electricity costs and lower total emissions by 11 per cent.

Other submissions of the draft include a trial of solar power on council buildings and a continued implementation of the regions bicycle strategy – which is awaiting approval from VicRoads and VicTrack.

The implementation of the new fire services levy, which will be removed from insurance premiums and instead will be collected through council rates, is also set to start from July 1. Amongst the changes will be the dropping of GST and stamp duty charged on the levy – which aims to save residents money as a result.

Council expenditure on renewing and upgrading Glen Eira infrastructure will ensure the highest quality environment for those with real estate in Carnegie – including $3.5 million for a drainage improvement program, $1.73 million for footpaths throughout the city and $3.8 million to be spent on maintaining roads.
