Financial management and governance

My Independent Team has always provided progressive, stable and corruption-free governance of our City.

Financial management and governance

During the 90s, the City was on the brink of bankruptcy. Since I have been elected, we have delivered budget surpluses every year, all of which have received unqualified audits.

These surpluses fund our $2 billion ten year capital works program, and our strong financial position allows us to provide quality services whilst keeping our rates among the lowest in metropolitan Sydney – including free rates for pensioners.

Our focus on design excellence has ensured we have better design in private development, and we have received 208 significant national and international awards for our projects.

Our longterm plan, Sustainable Sydney 2030–2050: Continuing the Vision underpins everything we do to create for a liveable, sustainable and thriving city and villages.
