A key focus of the 2022/23 budget is on continuing the momentum of the last two years.

We are focusing on maintaining our assets by ensuring our much-loved places and spaces can be enjoyed for the years to come. Another priority is preparing for and investing in our future by delivering and supporting projects, events, programs and initiatives that diversify our economy, connect our community, protect our environment, and support a healthy-active Mandurah.

We have continued to set our eyes firmly on the road ahead and deliver for our community according to our shared vision for Mandurah. This budget sets us up to deliver a bright future for our city, and keep the momentum going as we make exciting progress in the years to come.

With a reworked capital works program, prioritising the most important and impactful projects, and a reduction in operating expenses, we are able to deliver more for the community with less.
