As members of the Cook Shire Community, your review, feedback and comments on the proposed budget are important to Council, and we ask you to consider the following questions:

Do you think the proposed budget has achieved a balance between the provision of essential services, delivery of community services, and maintenance of infrastructure and capital works?  

How do you think the budget could be improved to better meet the lifestyles and aspirations of ratepayers and residents across the Shire?
