Each budget has been set prior to the start of the financial year when council are advised of the previous years budgets and all items of income/expenditure are individually specified
for Council's approval before the budgets are set.

Council receive an up to date budget report at each Finance meeting which details the actual position of income/expenditure against individual budgets.
