Funding council services and facilities
For general information about local government rates and valuations click here >>>
Council rates are a property based charge. Councils use property values as the basis of their rate calculation.
Rate revenue, along with council's other income, is used to help fund a range of services and facilities provided by council for the enjoyment and safety of the whole community. Some examples of these services are road construction and maintenance, public gardens, youth and children's services, library services and aged care services.
