The general rates detailed for the 2014/2015 financial year have been determined by Council on the basis of raising the revenue required to meet the deficiency between the total estimated expenditure proposed in the budget and the estimated revenue to be received from all sources other than rates and also considering the extent of any increase in rating over the level adopted in the previous year.

The minimum rates have been determined by Council on the basis that all ratepayers must make a reasonable contribution to the cost of the Local Government’s services/facilities.

A minimum rate of $687.00 (exclusive of rubbish collection) is imposed in respect of any rateable land in accordance with Section 6.35(1-6) of the Local Government Act (1995).
