Rate Increases to Keep us ‘Shipshape’

Dear Editor,

I was incensed at the trite justification for the rate SRV. Delighted that Mayor Honey enjoys the new playgrounds, bubblers and BMX track, but many of us over 60 who fund these initiatives, do not need them.

Is it just me who thinks it's for tourism?

I'd be happy with my council nature strip getting a clip from time to time. How about the basics and full disclosure of an increase that sits on top of one of the highest rate levels in the state.
