Marown Commissioners are increasing their rates for the financial year 2020/2021 from £1.50 in the pound to £1.64 in the pound. This equates to a 9.33% increase.
Despite the ever increasing costs associated with the energy-from-waste plant as well as responsibility for additional services handed down from central government, over the years the Commissioners have endeavoured to run a balanced budget with minimal impact to the ratepayer. However, the cost of waste disposal has increased significantly, and also given the recent introduction of the Equality Act on the Isle of Man, we have decided to invest in new and replacement public amenities within the Parish which we hope will be well utilised. The Commissioners appreciate that this is quite a significate rise at this time, however Marown maintains one of the lowest rates of any Parish Authorities on the Island

Marown is the only parish in the Isle of Man with no coastline. It covers an area of 26.7 square kilometres (10.3 square miles) and at the time of the 2006 census had a population of 2,086. The population density of Marown, at 70.5 people per square kilometre (202.5 per square mile), is much lower than any of the towns or villages but is the second highest of any parish (after Arbory).
The five members of the commissioners have been elected by the people of the Parish to administer a range of local government functions and, whenever possible,to act as the voice of the Parish by bringing local issues and views to the attention of central government and other outside parties.
