Ordinary rates are used to provide essential services such as the road network, street lighting, street cleaning, footpaths, parks, sport and recreation facilities, environmental planning and conservation, city rangers, pest control, libraries, town planning and building control, community services and much more. Special rates can be used to fund specific local benefit programs such as activity to increase business or to promote an area.
