Mayor's Message

More than half of Isaac region ratepayers who live in their own home can expect a decrease in the cost of their rates under Council’s 2018-19 Budget.

This year’s Budget is about Building a Stronger Isaac and that starts with supporting our local communities.

For 2018-19, I am pleased to announce that Council has kept rates on hold for households and businesses.

There will be no increase in the General Rate across residential, rural and commercial/industrial classifications. 

In addition, utility charges for waste and sewerage have been held to a 1% increase. 

Council’s Water Infrastructure Charge will also remain unchanged, but there will be an increase to consumption costs for users.

It is a result which illustrates our genuine appreciation of the cost of living pressures affecting Isaac households.

We remain focused on Building a Stronger Isaac through upgrades to the critical infrastructure which supports our communities and industries, particularly roads and water, as part of a capital program totalling almost $73 million.

Mayor Anne Baker
Isaac Regional Council
