Unpaid rates increase
Received your rates notice this week? I hope it wan't too much of a shock? I remember when Councils moved to quarterly billing to reduce the shock and improve people's ability to pay. Now it starting to seem like a good idea to have monthly billing,if requested by individuals: although that is my thoughts and not one I've discussed more widely. According to the paper Unley has seen an increase in rate debt over the last 3 years. Council can, if the debt is large enough, force the sale of a property, in my time on Council I can only remember doing this once although it has been discussed a number of times for individual sites it rarely happens.
