on June 30 this year.
As of June 30 2017, Council held $11.075m in cash and cash

due to the impact of some uncompleted projects.

additional $243,000.
However, a drop in user fees of $144,000 was recorded and
attributed to a decline in payments from leisure services; a
grant of $300,000 was also received, and $2.263 million was
