Pete Smith asked how the Mid Murray Council can justify a 4.5% rate rise in the 2018/19 financial year.

He's spoken at a recent meeting urging council to rethink the rise and focus on maintaining assets rather than investing in new infrastructure.

Mid Murray Council CEO Russell Peate explains the rate rise and what exactly the money will be spent on.
