How Rates Are Calculated

All land within a Council area, except for land specifically exempt (e.g. crown land, Council occupied land and other land prescribed in the Local Government Act 1999 - refer section 147 of the Act) is rateable.

The Local Government Act provides for a Council to raise revenue for the broad purposes of the Council through a general rate, which applies to all rateable properties, or through differential general rates, which apply to classes of properties. The Council also raises revenue through fees and charges.

The Council adopted at its meeting held 20th June 2016:

  • Site Valuations of the Valuer-General for rating purposes totalling $1,109,117,600.00.
  • Differential general rates:
  • .006935 cents in the dollar on all other rateable land in the area
  • Imposed a fixed charge of $415 on each separate piece of rateable land excluding Marina Berths
  • Declared a separate rate of $79.00 per rateable assessment to reimburse the Council the amount contributed to the Eyre Peninsula Natural Resources Management Board
  • City of Port Lincoln Waste Service Charge $233.20, Recycling Annual Service Charge $55.
