2012/13 Financial Summary
Council uses the following financial indicators to measure its financial performance on an annual basis.
1. Operating result - $120,000 deficit ($0.952M deficit 2011/12)
An analysis of recent operating results is outlined in the graph below.
Operating Results: 2009/10 – 2012/13
(i) Operating revenue
Operating revenue increased from $20.505M (2011/12) to $21.533M (2012/13), a 5% increase.
Key factors behind the increased revenue included:
a General Rates – an increase of $1.085M (7.3%) in revenue (including 2% new revenue from development
growth)
b Statutory Charges – an increase of $98,000 (17.7%), which was primarily due to a 24% increase in the number
of development applications received and an 11% increase in the number of parking expiations issued;
c Reimbursements – an increase of $63,000 (18.8%), which was partly due to an increase in the amount of debt
collection costs recovered from ratepayers, as part of Council’s increasing focus on improved debt recovery
practices.
(ii) Operating expenditure
Operating expenditure increased from $21.457M (2011/12) to $21.653M (2012/13), an increase of 0.9%.
