Coffs council sells Woolgoolga home with $54k rates debt

A Woolgoolga property with a long history of unpaid rates and charges to the City of Coffs Harbour Council has been sold at auction. 

Around 70 properties were slated for last Friday’s auction, however all but one were withdrawn from the sale after arrangements to the satisfaction of the Council were put in place.

The sold home, at 43 Pullen Street, Woolgoolga, had an outstanding rates or charges bill of $54,185.29 in arrears. 

“This shows we are serious and will follow through where people fail to meet their legal obligations to the community,” said Council General Manager, Natalia Cowley. 

“Rates are a shared responsibility, helping to fund the common assets of the community such as roads, water, parks, sewer and various public buildings.” 

The auction hammer came down on the four-bedroom two-bathroom property for a final price of $555,000.
