Draft Fees and Charges Policy Exhibition

Project Overview

Have your say on Council's Draft Fees and Charges Policy which guides Council's approach to setting appropriate levels of fees and charges.

Fees and Charges represent an important source of income for Moorabool Shire Council. This Fees and Charges Policy provides guidance on Council’s approach in setting appropriate levels of fees and charges, considering community benefit, user groups and Council Plan objectives, and to provide for regular reviews of fees and charges within the overall service and financial planning process.

The Draft Fees and Charges Policy encourages pricing that is simple to administer, equitable, easily understood, and provides value for money.
