City Budget 2014-15

In one of the tightest budgets the City of Greater Geraldton has had to bring in, Council has endorsed a rate increase of 4.3% on residential rates, a reduction of 0.9%, and an increase of only 3.6% on non-residential rates, equating to a reduction of 1.6% on the advertised proposed rate.

The increase in rates for an average residential property will be $1.27 per week.

The City worked with two Community Panels that reviewed the Council’s Capital Works Program and range and level of services. Their recommendations were accepted by Council and incorporated into the 2014-15 Budget.

Big ticket items that feature in the budget and are close to the hearts of many ratepayers include around $4.7 million addressing coastal erosion and beach protection; funding of $100,000 to investigate domestic recycling and $900,000 to undertake green waste processing, concrete crushing and the design of an integrated resource recovery centre.

And of course, one of the major infrastructure requirements – roads, footpaths and drains will get an injection of more than $5 million for upgrades.
