Positive audit of Council’s finances
Upper Hunter Shire Council is in a positive financial position as shown in the external Audit Report presented to a Council meeting on 21 November.
In 2013/14 Council had Cash Inflows of $46.6m and Cash outflows of $42.6m, which is an increase in cash of $4.2m. This is mainly attributable to loans being drawn down that have not been fully expended, so there was no negative impact on Council’s cash position.
Upper Hunter Shire Council is a local government authority and provides an extensive array of services including health and building; town planning; aged care; sporting and recreational facilities; roads; libraries; garbage collection; airport facilities; saleyards; public venues; water; children, youth and families and tourist information.
