Rate rise gets the nod for Coffs

COFFS Harbour City Council is breathing a sigh of relief today with the news its rate rise bid has been approved.

But Bellingen Shire Council is in a state of shock after its rate rise application was rejected. Bellingen has applied for a special 5.9 per cent rate increase.

NSW Local Government Minister Paul Lynch yesterday agreed to Coffs Harbour City Council's application for a one-off increase of 2.75 per cent in general income, on top of the already-approved 3.2 per cent rate-pegging allowance.

Nambucca shire also had its application approved.

See tomorrow's edition of The Coffs Coast Advocate for the full rates analysis.
