Water rates to drop from July
Peninsula homeowners will see their water rates drop from July 1, but their Council rates will rise by 2.7 per cent, with full rates parity in the former Gosford and Wyong council areas at least 12 months away.
Council did not debate the issues when the two matters came to the May 27 meeting.
The approval to reduce the average residential water bills across the coast by 14 to 33 per cent, as determined by the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal came at the beginning of the meeting as part of the matters passed en masse with no debate or comment.
Typical household bills will fall by around $355 in the former Gosford Council area, depending on water usage levels, creating parity in water rates across the region.
