Council hands down a budget for the future

Redland City Council’s 2014-15 Budget, adopted this week, will lay the foundations for a strong future while easing cost of living pressures by continuing to keep rates low.

This year’s $259 million Budget included a headline rates increase of 3.48 per cent, one of the lowest increases in South East Queensland for the third consecutive year.

This has been achieved while at the same time funding the commencement of key long-term strategic projects that will create a positive legacy for Redland City for generations to come.

This year’s budget also maintains existing concessions for pensioners, with a full pension discount of $330, providing $2.7 million in rebates for local pensioners.
