Residents are reminded to ensure they pay their rates notices on or by Wednesday 11 May 2016 in order to receive the 15 per cent discount.
Rates are something every property owner in a local government area pays to the council so it can provide the services, like swimming pools, libraries, and animal management, and the infrastructure, like roads, footpaths, bridges and playground equipment, that it needs to function.
We encourage anyone who is having difficulty paying their rates to contact us immediately via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, phone 1300 242 686 or by visiting one of our Customer Service Centres. There are a number of payment options for people who might find it difficult to pay their account, including direct debit or periodical payments.
Pensioners are also eligible for a 50 per cent reduction.
