Rates Prize Draw

The City of Stirling’s 2018 Rates Prize Draw was held at the City’s Civic Reception Hall on Wednesday October 3, 2018.

The draw is held each year to encourage and reward ratepayers for paying their rates on time and in full.

Ratepayers, who pay their rates on time and in full, are automatically entered into the draw. Winners are then selected at random by computer and invited attend the draw to select a prize which is concealed in a sealed envelope and revealed on the night.

This year, 21 ratepayers shared in a $65,000 prize pool, which included the grand prize of a 2018 Camry Ascent Sport Hybrid from Scarboro Toyota Osborne Park, valued at $34,500.

How rates are calculated

Rates are calculated by multiplying a property's gross rental value (GRV) by the rate in the dollar, subject to a minimum payment which is set each year by the City. Minimum payments are set in recognition of the fact that every property receives some level of benefit from works, services and facilities provided by the City.

Gross Rental Value

Gross rental value (GRV)

Gross rental value (GRV) is the fair rental value of your property, as determined by the state government body Landgate. It is an estimate of how much you could expect to receive if you were to rent your property. GRVs are subject to revaluation every three years as they can change following building and demolition works to a property, and subdivisions.
