Have your say on asset management in Strathbogie Shire

Strathbogie Shire Council is inviting community feedback on its Draft Asset Plan which outlines how assets are managed in the municipality, including maintenance, renewal, acquisition, expansion, and decommissioning.

Strathbogie Shire Council Mayor, Cr Laura Binks, said Council managed assets on behalf of the community with a value of more than $283 million.

“This includes 2204km of roads (735km sealed and 1469km unsealed), 125 road bridges, eight foot bridges, 387 buildings and structures, 37km of footpaths, 11 parks and reserves, four aquatic centres, 26 playgrounds and 42 hard courts and bowling greens,” Cr Binks said.

She said these assets were used by the community or by Council to provide services to the community.

“Over the next 10 years we expect to budget a total of $71.40 million for renewing, improving, and growing our assets,” she said.

“We are also projected to allocate about $93.20million over the same period to operate and maintain our assets. Combined, on average 42 per cent of our total annual expenditure is asset related.

“This investment is made so that our assets remain fit-for-purpose, are safe, and support the delivery of services to our community.

“It is vital that we are responsible asset managers, so our assets continue to support community outcomes.”

Asset management helps Council effectively plan the maintenance, upgrade and renewal of our assets as timely investments save money in the long term.

Under the Victorian Local Government Act 2020, Council must produce and maintain a 10-year asset plan. A copy of the Draft Asset Plan can be viewed online at https://share.strathbogie.vic.gov.au/draft-asset-plan or at any of Council’s customer service centres in Euroa and Nagambie.

The feedback period will run from April 20 to May 31 and feedback can be provided via:

  • Online submission at
  • In person at our Customer Service Centres in Euroa and Nagambie
  • Emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  • Writing to PO Box 177, Euroa, Vic, 3666.

Community feedback will be incorporated into the final version of the plan to be adopted by Council before June 30, 2022.
