Red Rock rates rise



RED ROCK and Corindi residents might be sharing in the Coffs Harbour City Council's vision as 'the healthy city', but they will be paying for the privilege after being hit with significant rate increases.

Last Friday hundreds of ratepayers in the area, which was last year transferred into the Coffs Harbour Local Government Area, received letters advising them of the rate hikes.

A Grafton couple discovered the rates for their weekend retreat in Red Rock was to go up by $122 a year, a increase of almost 29 per cent.

According to a letter sent to the couple by the council's general manager, Mark Ferguson, their beach house was one of 899 properties that would experience an increase over and above the 3.5 per cent annual increase.
