Berri Barmera Council

A local council is set to receive an extra $800,000 in general rates this year, however is not increasing the rate amount that's set.

The Berri-Barmera council will pick up the extra funds through property value increases, and sees an extra 12% collected than last year.

Council say the approach is sensible and they are also not immune to increasing costs.

Council’s budget outlines funds allocated for major projects including upgrades at the Lakeside oval in Barmera, Streetscaping in Berri as well as the relocation of the Berri Library.
