Penny pinching council

What a greedy council Greater Shepparton has become with its penny-pinching.

The Geelong council recently notified ratepayers saying, ‘Municipal Charges have been removed from annual rates'.

Obviously a $195 reduction on rates during the COVID-19 epidemic will assist many families struggling during these difficult times.

What has Greater Shepparton City Council offered, other than an extension of time to pay in full including Municipal Charges?
