Richmond hit by new rates

Thursday 1 July 2004

Richmond ratepayers will be particularly hard hit by rate rises which come into effect on Thursday.

By The Landlord

They will face two new rates specific to the Richmond area, on top of rate rises which will be borne by all ratepayers.

The Tasman District Council on Tuesday confirmed its rates for the 2004-05 year, including a 4.5 percent general rate rise and various other special rate rises.

For the first time, Richmond ratepayers will have to pay a special rate to fund the operational costs of the ASB Bank Aquatic Centre currently being built. The rate is $14.

Ratepayers in Richmond and Brightwater will also have to pay a $40 rate to fund the kerbside recycling scheme - even though there are doubts about the scheme's future.
