Community Rates Forum at Godinymayin Yijard Rivers Arts and Culture Centre

After the last Ordinary Council Meeting, on the 26th March elected members unanimously decided that the community rates forum needed to occur. This is the perfect opportunity to further understand the rates process, how the rates impact the level of service to the community and to ask any questions.


The community rates forum will be held at Godinymayin Yijard Rivers Arts and Culture Centre, April 8th 2019 at 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm.


Date: 8th April 2019

Time: 5:30pm – 7:30pm

Location: LOT 3238 Stuart Hwy, Katherine East NT 0850

Please be advised this is a follow up from Katherine Town Councils public notice on Katherine Town Councils Facebook – March 27 2019:

“Elected Members wish to apologise to all those residents who attended the Community Forum prior to the 26 March Ordinary Meeting of Council to discuss property rating. Unfortunately, the community member who advertised this session as a rates forum neglected to inform Council Officers of their plan. Consequently, we were unable to schedule the evening to allow adequate time for this important topic.

The positive news is, that during the Ordinary Meeting of Council, Council unanimously decided that a Community Rates Forum should occur. That session will now be held on Monday 8 April, between 5.30 and 7.00 pm at the Katherine Civic Centre. We look forward to a useful discussion with our community.”
