Rate capping gone: for now
The state government has recently voted down the Liberal party bill to introduce rate capping for all South Australian councils. You may remember some recent press that reported that Mayor, Lachlan Clyne, lodged a representation at a recent hearing in favour of rate capping. While he is at liberty to express his personal views that were never supported by Unley Councillors. While this is on the back burner for now it is still Liberal Party policy and it is time to lobby them to ensure that the concept, that hasn't worked interstate and was a disaster when trialled here, should be dropped altogether.
