Modest rate rise

STIRLING ratepayers are facing a modest 1.75 per cent rate increase, one of the lowest in the metro area.

The state’s biggest council has a budget totalling $307 million, with $95m going towards capital works ($28m on roads, paths, drains and parking, $8.2m on new parks, $10.1m improving the council’s own buildings and a $20m outdoor heated swimming pool at Scarborough Beach).

A lot of the juicy spends are outside Voiceland but there’s a million-dollar BMX club extension planned for Hamersley and $13.6m on the facelift of Scarborough.
