Greater Dandenong City Council is about to start the budget process for 2023-24. We want to hear more about your priorities and which services and facilities you would like us to support in 2023 and beyond.

Council's budget sets how we will spend the income raised from your rates. In 2022-23 Council will spend:

  • $27.40 million on buildings, roads, traffic management and drainage maintenance
  • $26.64 million on waste collection, street and public facilities cleaning
  • $20.73 million on parks, community facilities, sport and recreation
  • $19.77 million on planning, building and regulatory services
  • $16.26 million on families, children and youth
  • $16.25 million on libraries, arts, culture and community events
  • $15.20 million on health, aged and community services
  • $4.06 million on economic development and revitalising activity centres
