So South Gippsland Council’s newly appointed administrators have increased our rates to the maximum permitted.
I guess there wasn’t a lot of time to get on top of everything but still, our council has a budgeted surplus of over $5 million!
Also, many contend our council has some $30 million in reserves, but this is rapidly being spent.
Will these administrators not rock the boat and take their big ratepayer funded pay packets back to where they come from or will they be working for the community or someone else?

Rates are rising, yet $5m surplus
