Legislative council verdictpeterfSun, 16/04/2017 - 6:45pm

The hope that MidCoast Council would be prevented from applying for a special rate increase has been dashed. For while the NSW parliament recently passed legislation preventing the state’s merged councils from putting up rates it included one exception - MidCoast Council.

As a result of this legislation – the Local Government Amendment (Rates – Merged Council Areas) Bill 2017 – our council will now be the only merged council with the right to apply to IPART (Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal) for a special rate variation.

This is despite the NSW Office of Local Government late last...
