This was recently sent to me by a friend in the property renovation business.
Allhomes is reporting that, according to Richard Mulcahy home rates will increase an extra $145 per year over the next year.
Chief Minister Jon Stanhope has defended rate increases as needed to pay for better services and says the average rate increase is not as much as stated by Mulcahy.
I would have to ask, where is all this money going? Afterall, we had a huge rate increase only 12 months ago.
