Rate Capping

In the 2016/2017 year, the State Government introduced the Fair Go Rates System.  The system caps the amount Councils can raise the general rate by in any given year.  Councils can apply for a variance to the cap, City of Greater Bendigo has not applied for a variance to the rate cap since the system was introduced.

The cap does not apply to waste removal charges or the State Government Fire Services Property Levy.  Percentage movements in waste collection charges can be found in the Annual Budget.
