MEMBER for Mount Gambier Troy Bell has warned ratepayers will foot an $820,000 bill in council rates if Mount Gambier’s Housing Trust stock is offloaded by the State Government.

The independent MP said council may be forced to increase rates to cover a shortfall of more than $800,000 if Mount Gambier’s 1100 Housing Trust properties are handed over to non-profit organisations.
