Ratepayers can meet with Horsham Rural City Council leaders to discuss the 2020-21 Draft Budget at a pop-up shop in Horsham next week.

The Draft Budget is on public exhibition until July 7 and community feedback is sought.

It features a two per cent rate rise and all of the $484,000 raised from the increase would go towards helping people recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The shop at 38 Roberts Avenue will be open between 9am to 5pm from Wednesday to Friday next week and from 9am to 12noon on Saturday.

People will be able to find out more about the Draft Business and Community Assistance Program, developed to support business and the community through a blend of reduced costs for the community and programs to boost the economy. 

The Assistance Program will provide additional money to compliment COVID-19 support measures that are either already in place or budgeted for.

Council staff will also be able to share details of capital works spending such as urban and rural roads upgrades that are scheduled to happen.

All topics related to how Council spends money next financial year are available for discussion and no appointment is necessary.

Social distancing rules will apply.
