Understanding Your Rates

Townsville ratepayers receive their Rate & Utilities Notice in their mailbox or inbox twice a year, in February and August.

Townsville City Council's 2024/25 Budget reflects Council's commitment to maintaining core services for our entire community. In recent years Council has absorbed rising operational costs to ease pressure on residents, which is no longer sustainable.

This year ratepayers will see a necessary increase of 5.1% or $3.78 per week, made up of $1.74 rates and $2.04 utilities.
