Rates & Valuations
Rates are a wealth tax based on the valuation of your property.
Some people say rates are a “community tax”.
There is no direct link between the amount of rates you pay and the services you receive.
We receive the bulk of our income from municipal rates and charges.
Rates help us pay for all the services we provide to the community, including, roads, footpaths, bridges, parks, gardens, libraries and sports facilities.
