Rating Review 2018

Closes 30 Apr 2018

Opened 29 Mar 2018


Hamilton City Council is proposing a change to the way rates are calculated and how they are divided up among ratepayers. These proposals would reduce the amount of rates existing ratepayers will pay by increasing the amount of rates the Council gets from those benefitting from growth, and those creating more costs to the Council because of growth.

This form is about getting your feedback on the proposed Rating Review to help Council make decisions.  Scroll down to make a submission at Have Your Say.
