The Capital Works Program consists of projects which are to improve or replace Council assets. These projects are identified, budgeted and adopted by Council prior to the commencement of each new financial year. Throughout the course of a financial year, there can be unexpected impacts that result in changes to our capital program and how we prioritise spending. These changes are informed decisions made by Council during Budget Reviews throughout the year, and are reflected in the data we show you.
As outlined in Council Operating Revenue & Expenses, Council seeks grant funding to assist us in delivering these programs. Council will be receiving funding from Works for Queensland, Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program, Queensland Bushfire Recovery Funding and State and Federal funding for Road Infrastructure.
The Capital Works Program captures works such as:
- Bridge replacement, rehabilitation and renewal
- Roads maintenance
- Waste management
- Water and sewerage
- Environmental management
- Parks and sporting facilities
- Pedestrian/cycle pathways
