First budget for Ipswich's 51st Mayor

Described as measured and reflective of the current economic times, Ipswich's new Council will deliver its first budget next Tuesday.

Having had little more than three months since being installed in office, the Mayor and her Councillors have had to deep-dive into the city's $600 million finances, to determine a strategy to move Ipswich forward, underpinned by a new era of transparency and governance.

Mayor Teresa Harding is confident the budget will deliver value in these uncertain times, but admits some difficult choices were made.
