People’s Panel report to guide 10-Year Financial Plan

November 26, 2014

Recommendations on revenue and spending priorities from the City of Melbourne’s first People’s Panel will be embedded into the city’s financial strategy for the next decade.

Melbourne City Council last night unanimously agreed to undertake analysis and financial modelling on recommendations put forward by the People’s Panel.

The People’s Panel report will be embedded as a whole into the draft 10-Year Financial Plan as a key reference document, including an explanation as to if, how, and the extent to which, each recommendation could be acted upon.

A draft of the city’s first 10-Year Financial Plan, including these recommendations, will be considered by Council in April next year.
