LETTER: Help farmers by cutting council rates notices

Drought in Gippsland and northern Victoria has pushed farmers to the brink and the Victorian Government must act immediately on farmers’ calls for council rate relief.

The time for talk and visits is well passed. Farmers made it clear before last November’s election that they want the State Government to step up and provide financial relief in the form of council rates subsidies.

Our farmers are in desperate need of assistance, but we can’t get Daniel Andrews to provide what’s needed.

Council rates relief would put money back in the pockets of farmers who are struggling to make ends meet and help them pay other bills in their local communities.
