This is through the efficient and effective delivery of high quality services to the community within a responsible budget. The increase in this indicator compared to 2017/18 is primarily driven by an increase in annual operating expenditure on service delivery from $154.34 million in 2017/18 to $162.65 million in 2018/19.
