If the following news stories are any indication, one the general public's biggest issues with Local Government is big rate bills.
- Action group forms to tackle rate rises
- Farmers to turn out against rural rates slug
- Gold Coast ratepayers' water charges 'double-dipping'
One of the main purposes of this site is to encourage Council employees to share good ideas with each other. Good ideas will hopefully lead to cost savings, and with any luck cost savings will result in lower rate bills, or at the very least better value for money.
Now encouraging Council employees to share good ideas with each other is great, but if you really want to reduce your rates bill, why not share your good ideas with Council employees?
What have you got to lose? Hopefully big rate bills.
Go on, tell us your ideas.
