Barunga West rates lowered

IF council’s draft budget is approved, Barunga West ratepayers will have a lower rate increase for 2017-18 than forecast in council’s long-term financial plan.

District Council of Barunga West is proposing a 4.5 per cent increase, one per cent less than forecast, and expects the rate increase to drop to 3-3.5 per cent within the next three years.
