Councillors' views - Nick Kerry
Read the latest City Limits Magazine column by Councillor Nick Kerry.
Dear residents of Woodlands,
This article appears in City Limits magazine - Issue 52 - August 2016.
I am once again happy that Marion Council has lowered the rate increase in rates to 2.5%. This is compared to an average of 4-5% in the old Council 2010-2014.
Even though the rate is lower than the last term, I will continue to fight for even lower rates as part of my election promise.
I voted against the rate rise as I believe it should be lower. I will continue to lobby to keep rates low.
The City of Adelaide has frozen rates for 2016/17. There is a lot of merit in this example.
I will continue to fight to cut the waste and irrelevant programmes that Council funds.
I will also continue the fight to get the Federal Government to give the $4 million grant to upgrade Edwardstown sports oval. It is important that those promises are honoured.
This grant has become the number one priority to Council in terms of seeking funding.
Councillor Nick Kerry
