Rate rise for LSC

By Dominic Geiger

Lachlan Shire Council has announced a general rates rise of 2.8% in this year’s Draft Management Plan.
2.8% is the maximum allowable rates increase for any council in NSW.
An information sheet, titled ‘Comments from the Mayor and General Manager’, sited the increasing cost of water, sewerage and domestic waste management as the reason for the rates increase.
The information sheet also mentioned the fact that council had “been able to generate significant savings in the cost of updating management systems for water, sewerage, risk management and internal audit by working through Central NSW Councils (Centroc).”
An occupied house in Condobolin will see an increase from $255 to $274 in domestic waste management.
Water availability charges will increase from $250 and $265 with consumption under 450 kl increasing from $1.40 to $1.60 and consumption over 450kl increasing from $2.25 to $2.50.
Sewerage charges will increase from $386 to $410.
