Mandurah proposed rates rise

PIC: File

A 1.9 percent increase has been proposed for Mandurah ratepayers for the next financial year.

Chief Executive Officer Mark Newman said the proposed rate increase aims to achieve the best outcomes for both the City and the community, and fulfil the City’s responsibility of delivering new services and infrastructure.

“It’s paramount that our budget reflects value for money while still providing quality projects to our community in areas including recreation, roads and waterways,” Mr Newman said.

“The City is fortunate in that its new waste management contract has generated significant savings.

This means the City can continue to deliver existing services and new developments, such as the Lakelands Library and Community Centre, which can be achieved within a 1.9 percent rate increase.”

The community has until Friday, July 7 to have their say via haveyoursaymandurah.com.au, or submissions can be made in writing.
