News update: 1 May 2020
The City of Belmont unanimously voted, at its first electronic
Ordinary Council meeting on 28 April, in support of a zero per cent
increase in rate revenue for the 2020-2021 financial year.
Councillors also voted in favour of a raft of additional financial
assistance measures aimed at alleviating some of the financial burden
being faced by residents, business and clubs in light of COVID-19, many
of which will take effect immediately.
“COVID-19 is potentially the biggest challenge our City has
faced in most of our lifetimes and we want the people of Belmont to know
that we are endeavouring to help and do whatever we can to assist the
community,” Mayor Marks said.
