UNSUSTAINABLE: The former Armidale Dumaresq Council survived on special rate variations for more than 16 years

Armidale's local government has been operating on an income provided by a special rate variation (SRV) for nearly two decades and Armidale Regional Council says it will be unable to continue to provide the current level of services and asset renewal unless a rate increase of 20.5 percent is approved and implemented next year.
