Shire en­dorses plan for rates to be paid weekly

Mandurah Coastal Times - - STREET WATCH -

THE Shire of Mur­ray has en­dorsed a pro­posal to of­fer an ad­di­tional op­tion for rates pay­ment.

Min­i­mum pay­ments op­tions in WA are a sin­gle an­nual pay­ment or four equal in­stal­ments.

A spe­cial pay­ment op­tion is also offered in which ar­range­ments can be made to make set pay­ments on spe­cific dates.

But af­ter some ratepay­ers asked to pay their rates in equal in­stal­ments across the year, the new op­tion would be based via di­rect debit on 52 weekly in­stal­ments, 26 fort­nightly in­stal­ments or 12 monthly in­stal­ments.

Based on feed­back from Rock­ing­ham and Man­durah coun­cils it is es­ti­mated that about 4 per cent of ratepay­ers would take up the of­fer.
