The City is currently modelling a number of options for next year’s budget. Some of the options being considered include rating levels, interest rates on late payments and further assistance to the community.
The City will be introducing weekly, fortnightly and monthly payment options in the upcoming budget to help alleviate this issue.
The City is currently working with the Federal, State and other Local Governments to work on a solution to assist our community. At this point in time, it is too early to provide an indication of what next year’s budget will entail.
It is expected that we will be playing a significant part in the recovery process post COVID-19 and the City will need to provide essential services, programs and employment initiatives to help stimulate the economy, which comes at a cost.
