The Securing our Future brochure has been mailed directly to all ratepayers and will start to arrive in letterboxes from Tuesday 29 July, 2014. Please find a copy of the brochure at the top of this page.

As outlined in the brochure, Council’s aim is to provide high quality services to its community. However, the revenue we receive from rates is unfortunately not adequate enough to keep pace with the increasing costs of maintaining our assets (e.g. libraries, buildings, parks) and infrastructure (e.g. roads, footpaths, cycleways). 

We either need to increase our income by increasing rates or reduce our expenditure by decreasing the level of services we provide our community.

As part of the process of making this decision, Council is looking for feedback from you - the ratepayer. Hearing from you on this important issue is vital for us so please make sure you provide us with your feedback through one of the many avenues made available to you.
