By Campaspe News

RESIDENTS are encouraged to have their say on Campaspe Shire’s proposed budget before submissions close on May 9.

“I encourage you to take a look at the budget and make a submission, everyone’s opinion is important and it is a great way to bring your ideas to council for consideration,” Cr Weston said.
