Tonight Monash Council passed its budget with a 6% rate rise – oh wait a minute – it was explained it is really a 7% rate rise – and if your property has increased in value it could be a 30% rate rise.
Our Mayor said it is fine to have an increase in rates if your property value increases. No sorry, he didn’t mention being unemployed, mortgaged, school or medical costs etc.
Unhappy about this? The time to have a say has passed! You missed it.
