This morning Mayor Cr Jenny Hill handed down The City Budget 2017/18 and we've found out how we will and won't benefit from it.
- Utilities have gone up 2.1%
- General rates have been cut by 5%
- $5.5 million for water purchase and pumping water from the Burdekin
- $1 million to fix rural roads
- Upgrades to stinger nets
But the big surprise is the fact that we'll get free green waste dumping from July 1, and roadside hard rubbish collection will start next year replacing the dump voucher system.
