There is still time to share your views on the proposed Special Rate Variation (SRV) and implementation of Rates Harmonisation, with submissions still open until Thursday December 10th.
Armidale Regional Council Acting General Manager John Rayner said that face-to-face sessions have provided Council with valuable feedback on the three options for an SRV presented to the community.
If residents haven’t had time to review the information sent to all ratepayers in the mail or were unable to attend a scheduled engagement activity there is still opportunity to review the information on (Council’s yoursay online engagement hub) or you can call Council’s dedicated SRV hotline on 1300 364 366.
Council has also conducted a phone survey of randomly selected members of the community to seek further feedback.
“So far the response rate for submissions is encouraging and we are receiving a broad range of views on the options presented for the proposed special rate variation,” said Mr Rayner.
“If you haven’t yet shared your views there is still time and I encourage as many members of the community to take the time to submit a formal submission.”
Information on how to make a submission is available on the online engagement hub or ring the hotline for details. Submissions close Thursday 10 December 2020.
A report will be presented to the January 2021 Council Meeting on a final recommendation on an SRV to present to the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal.
