Devonport City Council is inviting community members to put forward their ideas for projects and initiatives as part of the 2021/22 budget consultation process.
Mayor Cr Annette Rockliff said the consultation process is a way for community members to share their ideas directly with Council.
“Seeking the community’s input is an important part of Devonport City Council’s annual budget process and it provides those who are interested the opportunity to help shape the delivery of City projects and infrastructure,” Cr Rockliff said.
“The last year has been challenging for many due to COVID-19, and as Mayor I have been extremely proud of how Council supported residents, local businesses and community groups in the face of uncertain impacts of the pandemic.
“Despite the challenges, we have continued to deliver community services and projects for our City’s benefit.
“We know Devonport community members are passionate about their City and we encourage them to bring forward their ideas. In doing so they have direct input into Council’s budget and decision-making process. All suggestions made will be considered by Council as part of the annual budgeting cycle.”
Cr Rockliff said the consultation had proven successful in the past with projects such as lighting along Victoria Parade, and the Spreyton Primary School pedestrian crossing initiated through the process.
Ideas can be submitted through www.speakupdevonport.com.au, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, by completing a form available from Council’s Customer Service Centre or in writing to PO Box 604, Devonport, Tas, 7310.
Submissions can be made until 5 p.m. on Monday, 22 February 2021.
