Lack of Govt. concession a concern
to Mid Murray Council
The Mid Murray Council is expressing
concern about the June 2014 decision by the
Commonwealth Government cutting funding to
the State Government for pensioner and other
concessions amounting to $27M.
The State Government has maintained
concession on Council rates paid under the SA
Parliament’s Rates and Land Tax Remission
Act 1986 ($34m) this financial year. However it
has announced it will stop concessions on rates
from July 1 2015.
The Mayor of the Mid Murray Council, Mr
Dave Burgess said, “We estimate that next year’s
rates, for most people currently eligible for a
concession, will include a bill shock of around
20% without the concession.”
The discontinuation of the concession will
result in 1,240 concession holders in the Mid
Murray Council being affected with a removal
of $237,719 financial assistance.
The concessions provided are on
Council rates, effluent disposal and water
The Mayor said, “Council is opposed to the
Federal cut and is also opposing the State
Government’s decision to abolish concessions
on Council rates. We need you to help us to help
our most vulnerable to retain these concession

decision, please contact your local Member of
