As a result of the City of Perth Act, which took effect today, all properties that were located in the City of Subiaco south of Aberdare Road are now part of the City of Perth. All local government services will now be delivered to these properties by the City of Perth. For more information about the transition, visit the City of Perth Act page
on the City of Subiaco’s website.
The City of Subiaco’s 2016-17 budget is expected to be adopted at a Special Council Meeting on 19 July 2016.
Council is aware of economic pressures for business owners and is considering all options to keep its rate rise as minimal as possible. Council has already cut $4 million from the 2016-17 draft budget however there is still a $1.3 million shortfall as a direct result of the City of Perth Act. Council is looking at a number of avenues to further close this gap.
Rates notices will be issued after the city’s annual budget has been adopted by Council.
