Media Release
Water and Sewer Charge Increases
Release Date: Thursday 10 July 2014

Over the next week, Oberon residents will start receiving their 2014/2015 Council Rate Notices in the mail.

After extensive consultation with the Oberon Community, Council at its meeting on 26 June 2014 approved an increase to the Water charges (10%) and Sewer charges (15%) for Residential ratepayers.

This is an essential increase. Each year Council determines its rate increases after working out how much money is needed to deliver services, to manage assets and to improve local infrastructure and carry out local government functions.

During the 2014/2015 financial year the money received from rates will provide much-needed improvements to Oberon’s water infrastructure and to undertake a sewer pump replacement program.
