Redland City Council – Rates Process Public Consultation

The Redlands City Council have begun a process of reviewing the manner in which our municipal rates are calculated and apportioned.  The first step was a public information session held on Friday December 4, 2009 to provide education on the current process. Here is a copy of the Council’s press release:  InfoSessionOnRating

Thanks to all those members who attended and registered their interest in participating in the follow-on activities early in the NewYear.

Thanks also to committee member George Harris whose determined activity under the banner of Redland Rate Reform Group has in large measure brought about the review.

We now need all high-value propery-owners across the city to give support to George in his quest to have a fairere rating system in the Redlands.
