Executive Managerís Report LM5/12
Date of Meeting: 20/06/2012
GM12/12 - Adoption of Council's Delivery Program - Includes the Operational Plan, Budget, Fees and Charges and Rating Structure for 2012/13
General Managerís Report No. GM12/12 recommended an increase of $68 to the Domestic Waste Management Charge to cover increases to the waste levy, landfill charges, CPI, the impacts of the carbon tax and to build the Waste Reserve Fund.† Of the total $68 increase, $13 was attributable to the carbon tax.
Since the finalisation of General Managerís Report No. GM12/12, more detailed modelling of the impacts of the carbon tax on domestic waste services has been completed, resulting in a downwards revision to $9.58 of the cost attributed to the carbon tax.
Accordingly, it is recommended that Councilís 2012/13 domestic waste management service charge be reduced by $3, to $291; and that the annual service charge for high rise occupancies be reduced by $3, to $228.† The remaining 42 cent amount would be used to build the Waste Reserve Fund.
General Managerís Report No. GM12/12 also indicated that the total rates increase attributable to the carbon tax for the Ďaverageí ratepayer equated to $17.60.† This figure was calculated on the basis of a 0.4% rate increase, which for the Ďaverageí household is $4.60, plus the $13 increase in the domestic waste management charge.†
With the downward revision relating to the domestic waste management charge, the total rates increase attributable to the carbon tax for the Ďaverageí ratepayer is calculated to be $14.18.
