Kiama told to rein-back rate rise


There's to be a rise in rates for Kiama.. but not quite as much as the council hoped for.

With increases pegged at 2.3 percent from July one.. Kiama applied to the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal for a variation of 19.1 percent over three years.

However the Tribunal has knocked back the application claiming it lacked sufficient detail .. and instead agreed to a 6-percent increase for one year only.
