I am taking this opportunity to record my objection to rates of any type being increased.
Our community has suffered from a long period of drought followed by bush fires, dust storms and now COVID 19.
DRC has funds in reserve, grant money and should with strong management be able to function without putting further financial pressure on our community.
I am weary from reading about the waste of ratepayers funds on digital meters, trees and other non essential spending.
Get the roads fixed and look after the ratepayers...ratepayers should be asking why with such high equity on 2019 financial statement can the councillors and staff even consider any rate increases at this time.
