Is there a Council service you think could be improved, facilities that could do with a boost or a new project you think would be fantastic for Monash?

If so, we would love to hear from you!

Share your ideas with us to help shape the 2020-21 Budget.

To add some context:

  • Monash continues to have the lowest average rates of all Victorian councils and is debt free
  • This year (2019/20) we have a $64M capital works program, our largest ever. You can view the projects planned for this year in our 2019/20 Budget
  • The 2017-21 Council Plan outlines 4 Strategic Objectives and their underpinning Strategies as required under the Local Government Act
