New rates system

New rates system The City of Canterbury Bankstown has congratulated the new Minister for Local Government on her conciliatory approach in dealing with councils. No  

The City of Canterbury Bankstown has congratulated the new Minister for Local Government on her conciliatory approach in dealing with councils.

Mayor Khal Asfour said Shelley Hancock has shown great leadership in assessing and addressing what was developing as a crisis situation, in regards to the establishment of a new rates system for amalgamated councils, such as Canterbury-Bankstown.

"When we were forcibly amalgamated, back in 2016, we were told we had until June 2020 to be ready to roll out a new rates system," he said.

"But, to date, the Government has not provided the details for what that system looks like, so we have not been in a position to start informing and working with our community.

"To the new Minister’s credit, she has obviously listened to the Office of Local Government which has relayed the concerns of the impacted councils."

Ms Hancock has announced she intends to delay the start of any introduction of a new rates system, until the work on its structure is completed.

"Her actions to date certainly show she listens to reason and has a more collaborative approach to her predecessor," Mayor Asfour said.

"I am encouraged by the Minister’s start in the Local Government portfolio and look forward to working closely with her and the department, to make Canterbury-Bankstown an even better place to live in, work in and visit."
