Then risk paying more in Council rates and fees!

risk paying more in rates and Council fees

It’s happened before!
In April 2014 we were hit with rises in pet registration fees.  This increase should have been picked up and acted upon when the budget was passed by Council in June 2013.  Are there other times you have found out with hindsight that there was something you should have acted on?

It’s time for the community to LOOK closely at the budget plan, ASK questions and have their SAY.  YOU need to let the Council know what the community they serve expects in the budget.

Timeline for Action:
