Budget 2012-13;What's in it for Goodwood South?

Last Monday's meeting the budget was finally approved. The following are included in the budget. The final rate rise of 5.1% did not include an allowance for the Carbon Tax, these costs will have to be calclauted and savings identified to cover their cost as they arise.
