Adjustment for Solid Waste Levy increase

At their June Ordinary Meeting, Council adopted their 2019/20 Annual Business Plan and Budget with one amendment in response to the extraordinary increase to the State Government's Solid Waste Levy.

The average rate increase of 2.8% as originally proposed was amended to include an additional $10 increase for all properties to meet the unbudgeted solid waste levy cost impact of $170,000. Council also resolved to express 'deep disappointment' to the State Government about this increase.
