NRLX Draft Revenue Policy 2018-2019

As required under the Local Government Act, Council has reviewed its Revenue Policy. Council resolved at its meeting on 15 May 2018 to adopt the following fee structure for the NRLX for the 2018-2019 year:

  • Agents annual business licence fee – $10,500/per agency
  • Agents business usage fee – $1/head
  • Agents business usage fee (bull & stud sales)  – $2/head
  • Vendor usage fee – $10.80/head
  • Vendor capital levy – $2.05/head
  • Vendor usage fee (bull and stud sales) – $20/head

With the completion of the stage one $7 million upgrade to the NRLX, the agents’ business usage fee is moving to where it was proposed at the start of the 2017-2018 financial year, while the remaining fees are in line with all other fee increases across Council’s Revenue Policy at three percent (rounded). The additional fees for the bull and stud sales reflect that these sales generally involve high value stock with lower throughput, meaning higher operational costs for Council. These additional fees are also in line with what most other saleyards are charging.

The NRLX fees for both agents and vendors compare favourably to other livestock selling centres of a similar standard as the newly upgraded NRLX.  

Council’s Revised Delivery Program 2017-2021 and Operational Plan 2018-2019, including Draft Financial Estimates 2018-2022, as well as the Revenue Policy 2018-2019 are on public exhibition until Tuesday 19 June. During the exhibition period, submissions from the community can be forwarded to the General Manager, Richmond Valley Council, Locked Bag 10 Casino NSW 2470 or to council@richmondvalley.nsw.gov.au

Copies of the draft documents are available for inspection at Council’s Customer Service Centres in Casino and Evans Head, or can be viewed and downloaded from Council’s website at www.richmondvalley.nsw.gov.au

Members of the community can also address Council at its Tuesday 26 June meeting, which starts at 5pm. Anyone wishing to speak at this meeting should advise Council by 9.30am on Monday 25 June by emailing at council@richmondvalley.nsw.gov.au
