Local Government Cost Index

The Local Government Cost Index is the primary input into setting the annual rate peg. 
IPART surveys councils on costs for the LGCI every four years.  The next survey is due in 2019.
IPART has reweighted the LGCI based on the results of the 2015 cost survey of councils.  See the following Fact Sheet for more information: Reweighting of Local Government Cost Index.
