The Revenue Policy sets out Council’s revenue collection activities, of which fund the Council services and capital works program.
Council has prepared this Revenue Policy on the basis of:
1. Equity – All community residents have access to basic services whether they can afford them or not. Also, ensuring that the rating load is spread across all ratepayers as fair as possible.
2. Efficiency – Ensuring that resources available to Council are utilised in the most efficient way to deliver Council’s services based on community expectations.
3. Effectiveness – How well Council achieves results against agreed service levels.
