Draft Minutes of last Monday nights Council Meeting are now on the Council’s website here: http://archive.lithgow.nsw.gov.au/minutes/14/140512_Minutes.pdf
Below is the resolution from last Monday night’s Council Meeting relating to Capertee Valley Alliance Blog: http://caperteevalleyalliance.blogspot.com.au/2014/05/agenda-item-review-of-councils-on-site.html
1. Council place on Public Exhibition, the revised version of its On-site Sewage Management strategy for a period of 30 days including that the following fee structure is proposed for 2014/15:
High Risk Annual Fee for inspection and approval $33.10
Medium Risk Annual Fee for inspection and approval $29.10
Low Risk Annual Fee for inspection and approval $24.10
2. Submissions be invited
3. All submissions be reported back to Council for final adoption of the revised strategy.
MOVED: Councillor M F Ticehurst SECONDED: Councillor J McGinnes.
If you look at the Agenda Item, the original recommendation did not include any of the following bolded information and costs above, which we had included so that everyone would know what the new increases being proposed were.
The original cost to ALL ratepayers was only $13.10 per applicable rate notice – now the lowest is nearly double that at $24.10 up to $33.10.
Would be good to see a large response from affected ratepayers during the Public Exhibition – in the Lithgow Mercury, 2LT, Village Voice at Portland, etc.
