Glenorchy rate rise


Glenorchy City Council will vote through a record capital works program at Monday night's special meeting, with expectations the budget will be back in the black in 2025-26.

Covid relief measures like rates rebates have been scrapped.

The proposed 2021-22 budget includes a third 2.5 per cent rate rise in three years with a $1.3 million deficit next financial year.

Roughly a quarter of the $25 million works program involves road and transport projects.
