Being a property owner, you are required to pay rates each year. The City issues the rates in August and they become payable 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.
