Fraser Coast Regional Council Budget 2011/2012 – Message from the Mayor 

Investing in our Region’s Future

Fraser Coast Mayor Mick Kruger said this year’s Budget focused

on long-term sustainability and providing infrastructure that

would support jobs and local businesses.

“I believe the Council’s 2011/12 Budget is a financially responsible

result for the community,” Cr Kruger said.

“Council has taken a sensible approach in formulating this budget

and has again committed to producing more with less and adapting

to the changing economic environment.”

Council is focused on ensuring the sustainable management and

replacement of its existing $1.2 billion infrastructure base.

As with all levels of Government, Council is facing challenges in

ensuring sufficient funds are available for the renewal and

replacement of existing infrastructure while meeting demand for

new services.

Council has made “investing in our region’s prosperity”

a priority in 2011/12 and will spend $40.46 million

on infrastructure in 2011/12.
