What your rates pay for


Your rates are at work all year round, funding a lifetime of services and important projects for everyone in the Hume community.

The 2020/21 budget has been planned with the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 in mind. Every dollar of ratepayer’s money has responsibly allocated to important services and a range of projects. 

Over the next four years, a record $443 million will be invested to deliver the biggest capital works program in Council’s history. We’re starting more than 150 projects in 2020/21 to boost our local economy and get people back to work.

In 2020/21, $236.22 million will be invested to continue to deliver important day-to-day services for our community.
