The City of Swan has continued a zero per cent rates increase for the third year running, the decision has made the LGA the envy of Perth. The council’s decision was made with consideration of the rising cost of living and ongoing challenges with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Deputy Mayor Mel Congerton said the city’s focus was meeting the community’s needs now and well into the future.
“With rising inflation and costs, our priority is to reduce financial pressure on our ratepayers which is why there will be no increase in rates,” he said.
