Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS - By AN­DREA O’NEIL

Hun­dreds of ratepay­ers have been billed too low for their rates in a glitch that wiped $ 102,000 off Porirua City Coun­cil’s rates in­voices.

A to­tal of 445 res­i­den­tial and com­mer­cial ratepay­ers from across the city – 2.5 per cent of the city’s 17,500 ratepay­ers – were un­der­charged be­tween $20 and $7000 for their May 22 rates bill, the last of five in­stal­ments for their 2011-12 rates.

Of the 445 un­der-charged, 294 pay their rates by di­rect debit and paid the cor­rect rates. The re­main­ing 151 ratepay­ers have been given un­til June 8 to make up the short­fall.
