Council will consider the City of Greater Geelong’s Annual Report for the 2022-23 financial year at next Tuesday’s meeting.
The report provides a detailed overview of the organisation’s work to achieve the strategic priorities of Council’s four-year Our Community Plan 2021-2025 and performance against the annual budget.
The City’s $174.2 million investment into capital works projects such as new and upgraded buildings, swimming pools, parks, roads, footpaths and drainage is highlighted in the report.
The report showcases important strides being made towards ongoing environmental sustainability such as the rollout of energy efficient LED streetlights (14,000 residential streetlights replaced and 130 new lights installed) and reductions in operational carbon emissions (down 29 percent).
The Annual Report provides not only details of Council’s strategic highlights, but also a snapshot of the varied work done by staff on a day-to-day basis to serve our growing community.
