Wodonga Council is seeking expressions of interest from people wishing to be part of its rating reference group.
The group, which will include two councillors and council staff, will advise and provide input into the development of a new rating strategy, which will be presented to councillors no later than two weeks prior to the ordinary council meeting in December 2018.
The group's role will include:
- Identifying and recommending the principles that Wodonga Council should consider when setting general rates, particularly with regard to the creation and maintenance of any differential rates;
- Provide input regarding the equitable sharing of the rates burden between various categories of ratepayers; and,
- Identifying any other special rates or charges or levies it believes the council should consider.
