Wyndham City Council Says...

This ratio indicates the expenditure the Council incurs per property for the financial year.Total expenditure was lower than prior year,primarily due to net loss in 17/18 for disposal of some roads,bridges and land assets,taken over by VIC roads and continued increase in property assesments due to population growth in municipality.

Wyndham City Council Says...

This ratio measures the capacity the Council has to cover its immediate liability with current assets . The ratio continues to remain within target levels. In comparison to 17/18 the ratio was lower mainly due to increase in term deposits with an original maturity of greater than 12 months which are classified as non-current assets

The ratio of loans compared to rates has decreased when compared to the prior year due to the level of borrowings remaining unchanged, whilst rates revenue increased. This indicator is forecast to rise in 2019/20 due to the planned draw down of a further $30 million in borrowings during the financial year.

Wyndham City Council Says...

In 2018/19 all categories of revenue were higher when compared to the 2017/18 equivalent, due mostly to the significant growth occurring in the municipality. Additionally, in 2017/18, the control of some roads, bridges and land assets were transferred to VIC roads. Those assets had to been written off, which negatively impacted Council's Adjusted underlying surplus result.
