Council funds the majority of its activities through the collection of council rates. Rates help fund activities such as:

  • Library services

  • Drainage
  • Open space and recreation areas
  • Community services
  • Environmental land use planning
  • Development and construction assessment
  • Regulatory control (including environmental protection, waste management, animal control and health control)

Please note that the Council collects, but does not use, the money collected via its rate notice for the NSW Government’s Fire and Emergency Services Levy. This levy is passed directly to the NSW Government.
