Will my rates go up to pay for this project?

Updated 16 December

Council is in a strong financial position, recording surpluses for the past three years. It has the second lowest debt of major Councils in the State and can manage borrowings without having to put rates up any more than was indicated in this year’s Budget documents. 

Financial modelling over the next 10 years indicates capital expenditure of approximately $1.4 billion and annual rate increase of between 2% and 3.5%.
