Family in park in YarraRate Notices for the 2013/2014 financial year will be mailed out to all Yarra ratepayers in August 2013.

The collection of rates from property owners is Council's primary means of raising revenue to pay for its services. Rate payments are your investment in services and infrastructure for the Yarra community.

In 2013/2014, Council's budget provides for a total income of $151.7 million, of which $84.9 million comes from rates. The remaining income is to be raised from fees and charges, parking revenue, government grants and interest from investments. 

In forming its annual budget, Council increased its total rate revenue by 4.4% compared to a 5.9% increase in 2012/13.
