What's included in Hilltops council's 2019/2020 budget

Water and roads infrastructure are the big winners for Young out of Hilltops council's new budget.

Council's annual operational plan was adopted at June's council meeting, with more than $28m worth of projects on the books for the 2019/2020 financial year.

Overall, there will be $15m spent on roads infrastructure across the Hilltops, including $8.4m on replacing four bridges in the Young area - Wambanumba, Spring Creek, Cudgells Creek and Hannons Creek bridges.

A further $8m has been allocated to regional roads and resheeting.

Meanwhile, council is borrowing $6.2m for water and sewer main upgrades in the Young area.

"The budget puts the community's aspirations into dollars and is our promise to the community on what we will deliver within the 2019/20 financial year," Hilltops council mayor Brian Ingram said.

"Council this year added an increase in 80 per cent to gravel road resheeting. It will go a long way to making sure we get a our road network up to scratch."

The budget also outlines $10,000 for Wombat playground upgrades, $270,000 on Hilltops pound improvements and offleash areas, $300,000 to exploring Young cemetery extensions and $100,000 on storm water upgrades in town.

For Boorowa, $300,000 will go towards tennis court upgrades, while for Harden $760,000 is being allocated to water and sewer main extensions to the Rural Fire Service and racecourse site.

Tourism highlights for Young include $1m to the Lambing Flat Chinese Tribute Garden project, and $400,000 to Tresillian Park.
