KAURNA ACKNOWLEDGMENT
We acknowledge and pay respect to the Traditional Owners of the land on which
we stand, the Kaurna People of the Adelaide Plains. It is upon their ancestral lands
that the Port Adelaide Enfield Council meets. It is also the Place of the Kardi, the Emu,
whose story travels from the coast inland. We pay respect to Elders past and
present and emerging.
We respect their spiritual beliefs and connections to land which are of continuing
importance to the living Kaurna people of today.
We further acknowledge the contributions and important role that Aboriginal and
Torres Strait Islander people continue to play within our shared community.

                                                                         Annual Business Plan and Budget 2020 - 2021 • Pg 3

       years and continue to support ongoing services. Council also receives a
       number of ‘gifted’ or ‘donated’ assets from developers. These assets attract
       ongoing operational and maintenance costs over their life.
       At the same time, environmental change is challenging the capacity of
       existing assets to continue to provide an effective service. The community’s
       expectations are also increasing, which affects the ability of existing assets
       to meet the changing needs of current and future residents. As community
       assets have a comparatively lengthy useful life, it is a complex task to monitor,
       maintain and program the timing of their renewal.

       The 2020-2021 budget has been prepared mindful of the following principles:          Council uses a differential rating system to raise revenue based upon its land
       •   Delivering against our City Plan and the priorities of our community;            use to ensure fairness and equity in the distribution of rates.
       •   Sustainable, accurate and timely asset management;                               The anticipated level of rate revenue to be raised by each differential factor for
                                                                                            2020-2021 is set out in the table below: The estimated rate revenue increase
       •   Delivering major new assets and projects for the community for the longer
                                                                                            is expected to be 1.5% plus growth, with the 1.5% plus growth not applied to
           term;
                                                                                            the Regional Landscape Levy (previously known as NRM Levy) and New Haven

       The Budget has been structured to ensure that we responsibly remain within
       key financial indicator benchmarks and ensure Council’s financially sustainability
       going forward.

       YOUR RATES
       The Annual Business Plan is based on an average rate increase of 1.5% plus
       growth, growth being an increase in rateable properties. In setting rates for
       2020-2021, the rate increase is set at a level that provides confidence that
       services will be maintained and that a sufficient capital expenditure program is
       planned to maintain Council’s assets. Consideration has also been given to the
       impact of COVID-19 in the preparation of the budget.
       Rates account for 86% of Council’s operating revenue with other sources
       including fees, charges and grants.
       While the average rate increase is 1.5%, it should be noted that actual rates
       payable by a rate payer will vary according to individual property valuations,
       the attributed land use, and whether there has been any new development or
       capital improvement at the land.
       These valuations are assessed annually and supplied by the Valuer General
       in the case of residential property, and by the City Valuer in the case of non-
       residential property.
       Over the years we have continually been one of the lowest rating Councils and
       are aware of the impact of rate increases on the community. Therefore, we are
       continually looking for opportunities to keep any impact to a minimum.
