Community Budget Requests and Grants For 2019 / 20 Financial Year

Every year the Shire of Capel provides opportunities for the community to put forward requests to be considered in the annual draft budget.  As in previous years requests can be for specific items, community projects, sponsorship ideas, new services or improvements to Council buildings, assets, facilities and services.  The timelines are outlined below.

Community Budget Requests

If you want Council to consider new infrastructure e.g. playgrounds or facilities and services then these need to be submitted in writing stating what it is that you want considered, details of the estimated costs involved and what you believe the benefits would be.  All submissions will be considered as part of the budget process with outcomes advised in August when the budget is adopted.  Closing date for submissions is Thursday, 28 February 2019  and submissions should be addressed to the Executive Manager Corporate Services, Shire of Capel, PO Box 369, CAPEL  WA  6271, or email
