The councils are seeking $8 million in Federal Government funding towards the total project build cost of $21 million. Both councils will contribute up to $6.5 million each towards the build cost as well as sharing the annual operating cost. To fund the Regional Aquatic Centre, property owners will incur an incremental rate increase over a four year planning and construction period. Estimates indicate that the average annual increased cost per rateable property over the first four years will be as follows:

Rate increases to fund the Regional Aquatic Centre

Year 1 – project design and planning

Year 2 – Construction

Year 3 – Construction & commence operation

Year 4 – First full year of operation

City of Victor Harbor cost per year
