Rates & Property

Local Government provide a wide range of services for the benefit of the community, including managing and maintaining expensive infrastructure such as local roads, libraries, parks and playgrounds, and street lighting, as well as providing services such as planning and development assessment, waste collection, information and economic development.

One of the ways in which Councils fund these services is through their statutory power to charge “council rates”. The only tax available to Councils in South Australia, it accounts for the largest portion of Council funds.  Fees and charges, and grants from Federal and State governments make up the balance.

The District Council of Grant receives the majority of its revenue from rates.
