A PROPOSED 1.9 per cent increase in Mandurah’s rates was adopted for advertising by the City of Mandurah.
Councillors were told at their meeting last night it was the lowest increase for 10 years.
City chief executive Mark Newman said the City continued to face challenges in providing services and infrastructure to a growing community.
Although it was recognised that sections of the community were experiencing financial stress, it was important the City placed an emphasis on ensuring it would be able to deliver its services and provides community infrastructure into the future.
That would not be achievable if revenues were insufficient for the task.
Written submissions only are invited from ratepayers on www.haveyoursaymandurah.com.au, mailed to the Chief Executive Officer, City of Mandurah, PO Box 210, Mandurah or lodged in person at the council administration centre and must be received by 5pm, Friday, July 7.
