Rate rise on the agenda

The Advocate (Perth) - - NEWS -

CITY of Swan coun­cil­lors will vote on the 2018-19 an­nual gen­eral rates in­crease tonight, with Coun­cil con­sid­er­ing no rate rise as an op­tion.

Two pro­pos­als have been put be­fore – one be­ing a zero per cent rate rise and the other a 1.8 per cent rise.

If the coun­cil adopts to have no rate rise, there will be a $2.7 mil­lion short­fall, with cuts to cap­i­tal works and es­sen­tial ser­vices as a re­sult.

Coun­cil­lors will vote at tonight’s or­di­nary coun­cil meet­ing.
