The Council is committed to building a successful future for the Blue Mountains. To achieve this we have developed Six Strategies for Financial Sustainability that we are actively implementing to improve financial sustainability of the City. A key component of these strategies is engaging the community on how best we can achieve affordable and acceptable levels of service - given our financial challenges. Three OPTIONS for Resourcing Our Future have been developed for you to review and have your say on.
