Residents in Berri-Barmera council area will face a rate rise of a minimum of 2% in the 2019/20 year.

Council is expected to raise operational revenue of 8.4 million from ratepayers, up from the 7.9 it collected in 2018/19.

Copies of council’s annual draft business plan can be found via the councils website.

Acting CEO Karyn Burton Told the Murray pioneer council remains committed to improving community assets while respecting the community’s ability to pay rates and has kept the increases at reasonable levels.

As reported this week the neighbouring Loxton-Waikerie council plans to freeze  rate increases this year.
