Can’t keep up with Wanneroo business rates

IT appears that the council has again seen fit to increase rates well above the current CPI.

At a time when many business owners have seen a downturn in revenue of around 20 per cent, this is an outrageous increase.

I wish I could legislate a 5 per cent increase in my wages every year so I could keep up with the council.

Compound these increases over 10 years and see how fast the council’s finances grow .

It would be interesting if we could force the council to live within the constraints the real world lives in.

MICHAEL HOWARD, Wanneroo.
