Rates collected from properties makes up almost all of Council’s income for each year, which is then used to fund delivery of more than 120 services to the community, including waste collection, immunisations, libraries, road, footpath and drain maintenance and capital works projects (new buildings and infrastructure), and other essential services.
We understand that paying rates may be difficult at the moment, due to impacts to businesses and employment as a result of COVID-19. If you are experiencing financial hardship and are unable to pay your rates, we encourage you to fill out our form to request assistance. However, this assistance can only come in the form of payment plans or deferral, so your rates will still need to be paid by the end of these periods.
We will work with you to offer as much assistance as we can at this difficult time.
Penalty interest may apply if rates are not repaid by the due date given by Council.
