We have been overcharged rates for a long time but were told not to expect a refund as the money had already been spent. Stop increasing the rates until you have paid all ratepayers back for the overcharging. We were rural at Mungar and our rates were $667 a year. You changed us to rural residential when you amalgmated and now our rates are over $2000.00 a year. Shame on you

I’m a local who is sick paying ridiculously high rates that help promote Hervey Bay as a flashy tourist destination, yet does practically nothing for its local residents. Council have even taken away our early payment discount now.

These rates are higher than most of qld, and nothing to show for it, no reason for rates to be this high.

Rates are ridiculously expensive. Most of the residents are retired and struggle with the expense of living in the Fraser Coast. Established house values go down whilst Council and Govt support financially new house purchasers.
