Rates due next month

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

THE Whit­sun­day Re­gional Coun­cil has is­sued rates no­tices which are due for pay­ment on Septem­ber 8.

Wa­ter no­tices were also is­sued this week and will be due on Septem­ber 15.

Mayor Jennifer Whit­ney said rates must be paid in full, in­clud­ing the sep­a­rate in­fra­struc­ture charge, to be el­i­gi­ble for the five per cent dis­count.

“Please note the State Govern­ment Emer­gency Man­age­ment, Fire and Res­cue (EMFR) Levy which was in­tro­duced by the Queens­land Go- vern­ment and com­menced from Jan­uary 1, 2014, will be in­cluded in this rates no­tice,” she said.

“The levy re­places the pre­vi­ous Fire Levy and is now re­quired to be charged on all prop­er­ties within our re­gion.

“Ru­ral prop­er­ties that have a lo­cal ru­ral fire bri­gade will still be re­quired to pay the Fire Levy.

Ratepay­ers are also re­minded that rates which are not paid in full will in­cur in­ter­est charges.
