Council introduced a simplified two-part tariff for charging water to the community in July 2018. This was a large change from the previous allocation methodology and allowed ratepayers to have more control over their water bills by monitoring their water usage.
As the two-part tariff has now been operating for 10 months and our community has had a chance to adapt to the new system, Council now believes it is an appropriate time to review its implementation and seek community feedback.
Council are calling for Expressions of Interest from interested parties for participation in a series of small group workshops:
• Property owners of Residential Houses and/or Units;
• Property owners of Investment Properties; and
• Other Individuals who have been impacted by the simplified two-part tariff water charging methodology.
The purpose of these small group workshops is to provide feedback on how the two-part tariff methodology has affected you and to seek your input into ideas on how to make the water charging methodology even fairer for our community.
All registrations for an ‘Expression of Interest for the Water Charging Community Consultation Workshop’ will need to submitted by completing a Water Charging Community Consultation Expression of Interest Form with the required information:
• Contact Number
• Contact Email
• Address of Property Owned (If applicable)
• Brief summary of why you would like to participate
• Preferred availability
As there will be limited places available for these workshops, Council are requesting that you completed Water Charging Community Consultation Expression of Interest forms be returned by 5pm on Friday, May 10 2019.
Council will notify all successful applicants by email by 5pm on Friday, May 17 2019 with appropriate dates and times for the workshops.
