Rates and Payments

Changes to Council's rate structures to provide equity to ratepayers

Since the amalgamation of Kogarah and Hurstville Councils in 2016, Council has been required to maintain two rating systems for the Georges River area. As a result, there is inconsistency in the amount of rates paid across the former Kogarah and Hurstville Council areas.
We must create one consistent rating system to ensure a fairer approach for all ratepayers.

For more details on this matter, please review the frequently asked questions, visit Your Say Georges River or review Council’s media release.
