THE countdown is on with just six days left until the Mansfield Shire Councillors will choose to either adopt, or amend, the proposed 2017/18 budget.
It has been a historical period for council, with a record breaking 80 odd public submissions received as the community at large finds their voice.
With a $700,000 gap to fill, many changes have been slated for the 2017/18 year.
“The community engagement has been very positive,” Mansfield Shire mayor Paul Volkering said.
“To have received this many submissions is amazing.
“It has been challenging – the community has been very forthcoming but very honest with what they want,” he said.
