A budget promoting a $22 million capital works program while staying within the 2.5 per cent rate cap has been supported by Baw Baw Shire Council.

Council will raise $57 million in rates and charges and 38 per cent of its revenue will be spent on capital works.

More than half of the capital works program will be spent on roads, with $11.6 million allocated to roads.
