Oberon Council is considering an application to the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) for a Special Rate Variation for the 5 year period 2015/16 to 2019/20.
The Special Rate Variation will seek to increase Rates beyond the current maximum Rate Pegging Limit imposed on all Councils by the NSW Government.
A Survey has been mailed to all Oberon Council Ratepayers for completion and return by Friday 28 November 2014. Council will also conduct a random phone survey of approximately 250 ratepayers; ensuring greater opportunity to capture feedback and input from the broad community.
A Public Information Session will be held Thursday 20 November 2014 from 6pm at the Robert (Bob) Hooper Community Centre to provide details about the Survey. Everyone is encouraged to attend the session to ask questions and find out more.
