Southport Report

Last week Council adopted its 2020-21 roads to recovery budget – a budget that lays out the City’s economic plan to recover from the global pandemic.

 

Across the City, and in particular our CBD, we are providing rates and charges relief. This means an end to the CBD special rate that can be passed on to over 900 local businesses. It also means that 108,000 ratepayers will receive a lower rates notice compared to last year.

 

Additionally, the following rates were frozen (did not increase):

  • Recreation Space separate charge;
  • Water access utility charge;
  • Council’s part of the water consumption charge; and
  • Sewerage access utility charge.

 

We are providing social support by funding a $1.5M recovery package for community groups. If you know a community group doing it tough, get them to touch base before 31 July on 5581 6642.

 

This budget delivers the essential services that our city requires, while setting the foundations for a strong economic recovery.

Until next time,
