Rates are Council’s main source of income required to deliver services and maintain the infrastructure required by our community.
In setting the rates for the financial year, Council considers the current economic climate, specific issues faced by the community, the impact of rates on the community and its Community Plan, which determines:
- what services will be provided;
- what works will be undertaken; and
- how community assets will be managed.
At the City of Unley we have a minimum rate, which ensures all ratepayers contribute towards the provision of basic services at a reasonable level.
