Community to provide input into Rating Policy review

Litchfield Council is seeking expressions of interest from community members to join a Community Reference Group to assist with the review of Council’s current Rating Policy.

The Rating Policy sets out Council’s approach to rating in the Litchfield Municipality.

Litchfield Council Mayor Maree Bredhauer said, Council has resolved to undertake a review of the Rating Policy to identify the appropriateness of the current rating system and opportunities for improvement.

“The establishment of a Community Reference Group, including an independent Chair, shows Council’s commitment to listen to the community and involve them in the decision-making process” the Mayor said.

The Community Reference Group will meet a number of times in 2019 and provide recommendations to Council on the review of the Rating Policy.

There will be opportunities for the broader community to provide feedback throughout the Rating Policy review process.

To ensure there is a representation of a diverse range of demographics, Council is seeking expressions of interest from all areas of Litchfield, including commercial and industrial representatives.

An allowance is payable to Community Reference Group members in consideration for their time and effort to attend meetings.

Nominations close on Monday 22 October 2018.
