State budget offers support to young families but stings elsewhere


Hume City Council welcomes the cost-of-living relief provided in the Victorian Budget 2024/25 and the focus on managing State debt, which directly impacts local households.

As a rapidly growing municipality with many young families, we appreciate the budget measures supporting their well-being, including the $400 school year bonus, free eye-care for children and the Active Kids program.

We are also pleased to see our advocacy regarding improved educational infrastructure has been realised through commitments for the funding of the Sunbury TAFE, Mickleham South Primary School, and various school facility upgrades.
