Council's Proposed Works Program for 2019/2020 Revealed

Council has developed its Draft Works Program for Transport, Buildings and Stormwater Drainage so that the community can make an informed decision with regard to the proposed special rate variation.


The projected total SRV income (from maintaining the current SRV plus adding the new SRV) is estimated at $1.178 million for the 2019/20 year

  • $725,000 on Transport (sealed roads, unsealed roads, footpaths, cycleways, bridges and road drainage)
  • $100,000 on Stormwater Drainage
  • $250,000 on Buildings

Increasing the level of funding for these assets will allow Council to renew those which are currently in a poor condition. It will also ensure that the number of assets in poor condition does not continue to grow. It is essential that our community assets are safe, in working order and meet community expectations. The expenditure will ensure that the Office of Local Government ‘Fit for the Future’ asset benchmarks are met over time.

The remainder of the increased funding (approx. $100,000 p.a.) will be spent on business improvement initiatives which will either generate additional revenue or reduce long-term costs. Examples of projects could include energy saving programs or technological solutions which would generate operating efficiencies.

Download a copy of the proposed Transport, Stormwater Drainage and Buildings Program for 2019/20 from the Lithgow Council Have Your Say website or call into the Council Administration Centre or the Libraries to pick up a copy. The draft works program is subject to the consideration and approval of Council as part of the 2019/20 Operational Plan.

Written submissions quoting reference no. SRV19-20 will be accepted by Council until midnight on 11 January 2019:

• Lithgow City Council, PO Box 19, LITHGOW 2790 or email council@lithgow.nsw.gov.au

Written submissions may also be made to IPART in writing to IPART, PO Box K35, Haymarket Post Shop NSW 1240 or online.
