Comment on Rates may rise 3.5% but no civic centre swap in draft budget by Tina Schembri.

Noted the rural area rates base rate is $1345. Not sure why we are given a fixed figure. Interested in knowing?
It will obviously happen, q 3.5% increase.
Please consider rural areas for roadworks as the Palm Circuit, causeway and access road up to the Ross Highway has been in disrepair for years (as long as I can remember).
No upgrade in this area for the road. Very overdue considering we have three large caravan parks in this area.
Also Heenan Road was half sealed 2018, verges were not done and the work just stopped. Need to look at jobs to be completed, please.
Thank you.
