Your rates provide a range of community services, for the enjoyment, benefit and safety of the whole community.

Rates are the main source of revenue that pay for these services. This contribution, from residential and business ratepayers, is used to maintain community infrastructure.

In addition to paying for all the below services, $70 million every year is needed to keep assets maintained up to current standards.

However, once Council pays for all the services we provide to the community, we only have $39 million left to maintain our assets. This leaves a shortfall of $31 million every year.

Deferring the maintenance and renewal of many assets, results in their deterioration.

How are your rates spent?

Every $100 collected is distributed as follows across a range of services.
