Swan’s low rate

Hills Gazette (Kalamunda) - - NEWS -

SWAN Coun­cil has adopted a 1.8 per cent rate in­crease, the low­est in­crease in more than 17 years. Coun­cil­lors de­bated be­tween two pos­si­ble sce­nar­ios af­ter ad­ver­tis­ing no rate rise and a 1.8 per cent rise. Mayor David Lu­cas said the dif­fer­ence was only $36 for the year and the City had to be re­al­is­tic. “The City can't keep up projects and ser­vices and can't keep up ex­pec­ta­tions if we don't have an in­crease,” he said.
