Charges and Levies

Rates and charges are annual payments made by property owners to help council meet the costs of providing services and maintaining assets on behalf of the community. The rates and charges are determined through the annual budget. Rates are set by applying the rate in the dollar set by council against the Capital Improved Value (CIV) of the property.
