Tell us your budget priorities

The current City of Onkaparinga budget is $202.3 million per annum, which funds more than 200 services for our communities.  Our budget includes mandatory (legislated) services, and additional services valued by our residents.

Every 1% increase or decrease in our budget equates to approximately $16 more or less annually for the average household's council rates.

This budget tool is a way for you to tell us what’s priority to you across 15 budget categories, which represent the services we provide.  Your input will inform our thinking when we are developing our Long Term Financial Plan, which in turn shapes our annual Budget.

Don’t forget, you can also attend an Annual Business Plan workshop and complete our community survey, to make sure your voice is heard. Visit YourSay Onkaparinga to find out more.

Here's how to use the budget tool in four steps.

STEP 1: Click on the ‘share your opinion’ button below.

STEP 2: Use the tool to choose to increase, maintain or decrease spend across 15 budget categories. You must make a selection in each category for the tool to work. See how your choices affect the budget total.

STEP 3: Make comments by clicking on the grey comment icon next to each budget category. Providing comments is optional, but the more information you can share, the better we can understand your priorities.

STEP 4: Once you are happy with your choices, select ‘continue’ – you’ll see a budget summary reflecting your choices. Select ‘continue’ again to enter your name and email address* to submit your budget.
