Objects and Reason for Rates - 2018/19

Reason for difference in published rate-in-the-dollar

Reductions were made to the proposed differential and minimum rates rates for 2018/19 (advertised through a local public notice published on 8 May 2018) as Council was still considering intitiatives and the proposed capital spend. 

The Council has now considered the Capital Works Program Review and the lower Rate increase is sufficient to fund Operations and Capital Program for 2018/19.
