Hedland businesses can have their say on the local government’s proposed rates strategy for the next financial year at a meeting tonight.

While the Town of Port Hedland has already hosted a consultation forum for property owners to discuss residential rates, the Port Hedland Chamber of Commerce will tomorrow run a meeting for businesses.

“Please join us for a discussion on the announced 2016/17 rating strategy to find out how the five per cent rate reduction for commercial and industrial will help your business,” the chamber said in an email to members.

“This is your chance to speak to the (Town’s) executive team and voice your opinion.”

The meeting kicks off at the Civic Centre at 5.30pm tonight.
