The City of Fremantle’s 2022–23 budget focuses on delivering daily the hundreds of services, initiatives and activities that help our residents and visitors live, work and play in a City like nowhere else in the world.
The budget seeks to make a visible difference all over Freo, every day, by investing in some of the City’s favourite places, sprucing up our suburbs, making it safer and easier to get around, and bringing back the buzz to the CBD.
