The COVID-19 pandemic has made life hard for local families and businesses. Many businesses are struggling to survive, and millions of people are out of job or having work hours cut.

We, the undersigned Kingston ratepayers, call on the City of Kingston Councillors to vote against rate increases this financial year FY2020/21.

We are facing a very different post-COVID19 world. Demand for Goods and Services will be hugely impacted, and the risk of inflation is low and we are likely to see deflation. Therefore, there is no economic basis for the Council to increase its Rates as the cost of providing Council services is likely to remain the same or even lower. The petitioners therefore request the City of Kingston Councillors to vote for an zero increase in Total Rates and Municipal Charges in its upcoming FY 2020/21 budget.
