Rate Capping Support

Rate capping is a viable proposition. Adelaide City Council has done quite well over the past 4 years by limiting the rise in Council rates by freezing the rate in the dollar amount.

Council has recognised that the natural increase in property values enable them to maintain consistent and sustainable rate income to deliver services to residents, retailers and commercial properties across the city.

In the commercial world, we use technology planning and design to deliver increased offers and services to customers. We live in an increasingly competitive environment and part of making Adelaide the most liveable city in the world is to limit costs on people’s lives.

Council needs to have a clear vision of what the rate payers want in services and are willing to contribute to receive them. I strive to be accountable to you to listen to your views and represent you at Council during budget planning and review processes.
