Gladstone Regional Council Rates Rise A Disgrace


Gladstone Regional Council Rates Rise A Disgrace

This petition made change with 5,060 supporters!

Gladstone Council announced another RATES RISE this year. We are struggling to make ends meet and now they are slugging us again.  A petition was put forward to review rate rises and the budget back in 2015/16 to the then Mayor Gail Sellers.  2000 signatures were obtained and it wasn't enough.

After the big boom with huge price hikes to Rates, many asked how do you calculate rates.  The first answer recorded in a local publication had council telling home owners it is based on land valuations.  The next year when the valuations went down and rates went up council denied it was solely based on land valuations.

People are paying enough each year to cover a small mortgage and rates in Brisbane are a quarter of what we are paying things need to change.  

Council have the hide to threaten to sell your home out from under you when you can't afford it and their repayment plans are crippling to families which leaves them with no chance to get ahead.
