Option 1: Introduce the government compliance targeted rate.
This is Council’s preferred option.
Option 2: Fund compliance costs through the General Rate
Targeted rates are essential to informing ratepayers what there rates pay for and enable them to assess the fairness of the rate. This is a rate that applies to everyone but is mandated by government.
Option 1: Transfer funding for development at Hamilton Gardens from the current targeted rate to the general rate from 1 July 2021. Maintain the existing level of funding for development at Hamilton Gardens.
Option 2: Maintain the Hamilton Gardens targeted rate.
Hamilton Garden belongs to all ratepayers and being targeted reminds ratepayers and encourages them to visit and enjoy the garden thereby ensuring their support for the funding needed.
