RATING GROUND VALUES. ENQUIRIES BY THE COUNCIL. FOR THE BENEFIT OF NEWPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 30 May 1914
RATING GIOUUND VALUES. EN(QUIttIlIS iY TIII COUNOIL, 1i1U' TtIH BEINIItI' 01 NEWPORT, T'lE people in Newport, who; have built houses and have been paying rates on them for a number of years, sometimes for over 25 years, regard it as a hardship that they should be called upon to pay for making the streets in front of their houses, They think that the rates they pay should en title them to a new street, Legally, it does not; and from a business point of view, it does not ; but the Council recognises they have a claim to some concession and has thought an altera tion in the system of rating might work out to their advantage. By a recent alteration in the Local Government Act, municipalities have the option of rating buildings and land, or land alone. In Williamstown, the buildings have always been rated and every new house has always meant an addition to the revenue, However, for the benofit of Newport, it was thought an alteration of the system might equalise matters somewhat and an e...
