Rate rise to cover­town’s spend

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Front Page -

RATES in Mos­man Park will in­crease 1.9 per cent to gen­er­ate the ma­jor­ity of the cash needed to match the Town’s $12.1 mil­lion spend in 201718.

$8.7 mil­lion in rates will be gath­ered from prop­erty own­ers over the next 12 months, with fees and charges to bring in $2.2 mil­lion.

Close to $800,000 in non­op­er­at­ing grants, in­clud­ing $737,323 in Metropoli­tan Re­gional Road fund­ing, will also be in­cluded.

For their money, the Town’s re­main­ing 28 gas bar­be­cue plates at its parks and re­serves will be re­placed with new elec­tric mod­els.
