On Tuesday 28 May at the Ordinary Council Meeting held in Wyndham, Council debated a report in relation to the 2019/20 Budget. Council subsequently decided that there would be no rate rise for rate payers over the 2019/20 financial year.

A number of issues were raised by Councillors including historical rises in rate revenue over the preceding 10 years, and the current economic climate.

The council also acknowledged feedback from the 2019 community survey results, which showed concern for value for rate payers money.

The Shire of Wyndham East Kimberley is committed to investing in our community and creating a great place to live.
