I am a ratepayer in the Woy Woy area and have just received the current Annual Rate Notice which discloses an increase of 40 per cent or $813.05 per annum.
I am an aged pensioner with a taxable income under $20,000 (including the pension) and have paid taxes all my life.
I have also had private health insurance all my adult life. I am now looking at cancelling my health insurance due to this massive increase.
I would like to see those responsible for the amalgamation debacle and the overspending of available funds be approached to pay this increase.
