We advocate for a lowering of rates.
Rates have risen substantially over the past 2 decades and with declining property values across Victoria, this places a high burden on ratepayers household budgets.
Rates levels for many are unsustainable.
We work extensively to pressure councils to cut wasteful spending and deliver value for money. Many councils waste many millions of dollars on items that deliver little to no benefit to the majority of ratepayers - that must change.
We lobby councils to be transparent and share all information possible with ratepayers. We seek to end the "secrecy" within many council operations. We demand less "confidential business" and more scrutiny of all council decisions, spending and outcomes
