Rate Rise

We’ve been talking with our community about Council’s financial position and ways we can balance our budget since July 2022.

The Council met on 8 November 2022, and after carefully considering the community feedback received, unanimously agreed to submit an application to the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) for a Special Rate Variation of 9.5% each year for three years.

Council is now working towards preparing the application which will be submitted prior to 3 February 2023.

The community will be able to make further community consultation via IPART which is expected to occur during February to March 2023.
