Is this why our rates keep increasing and our services reduced, to cover these incentives and the legal fees paid out?
I note that all is hush regarding our rebate for the carbon tax charges.
When the City was interviewed by a newspaper regarding the carbon tax charges, it didn’t give a clear reply and said it hadn’t decided and it would probably put the money collected from ratepayers for the carbon tax towards the new rubbish system commencing in 2015.
We should all contact the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission about this as legally, the money has to be given back to ratepayers.
This new rubbish system is going to be subsidised by the State Government, therefore, I feel the City is giving the ratepayers very little for their rates.
