Water rate review deferred 12 months
Central Coast Council has welcomed the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal decision to defer the next review and determination of water, sewerage and drainage prices for 12 months.
The decision means current prices for residents and businesses will remain in place until June 2019.
Council's assets and infrastructure group leader Mr Mike Dowling said the decision would allow Council to develop a comprehensive submission for the next review and determination.
"We will be taking the extra time granted by IPART to develop robust and accurate cost forecasts for the 2018-19 price review," said Mr Dowling.
"This will ensure we can take into account the entire water, sewer and drainage business across the Central Coast and implement efficiencies gained during the amalgamation process.
"Council will continue to engage with IPART to ensure we develop an effective and efficient price review, which delivers benefits to both our community and Council."
Residents and business concerned about the impact of this decision on their individual water and sewerage bills can contact Council.
