As part of being a property owner, there is an added responsibility of ensuring that your annual rates are paid as shown on your rate notice. Each year the City issues the rates in August with a due date 35 days later in September.

Your rates provide Council with part of the revenue needed to manage all the services and facilities which make the City an attractive place to live. These include the paths you walk or ride along every day, parks and gardens and recreational grounds, including the playgrounds and barbecue areas available for you and your families to use.
