Rates Harmonisation

As a result of the merger of the former Cootamundra Shire and Gundagai Shire Council areas, Council inherited two alternate rate structures.  As required by legislation, Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council must review the rates structure to align the former rates systems into a single consistent structure.

Council engaged the services of Professor Joseph Drew, Associate Professor of Public Policy and Local Government in the Institute for Public Policy and Governance at the University of Technology Sydney and adjunct Professor at the Department of Business Administration, Tokyo Metropolitan University to research options to identify the most equitable rating system for implementation for CGRC.

The video below is a compilation of research and recommendations from Professor Drew.
