Win $1000 off your mid-year rates notice
SUNSHINE Coast ratepayers have the chance to win up to $1000 off their mid-year rates bill just by signing up to receive their future rates notices by email.
Corporate Strategy and Finance Portfolio councillor Tim Dwyer said the $1000 prize incentive was a healthy, smart, creative step to encourage ratepayers to receive their rates notices electronically, providing both convenience for the ratepayer and cost reductions for council.
“It costs council a significant amount of money to print and then mail out rates notices to Sunshine Coast ratepayers using traditional postal services,” Cr Dwyer said.
“Moving to an online system is not only financially and environmentally cost-effective but also allows our ratepayers to receive their notices wherever they are, anywhere in the world and arrange payment in a more timely manner to ensure they don’t miss the early bird discount period.
“I encourage ratepayers who are currently receiving their rates notices in the post to visit council’s website and sign-up to MyCouncil or login to their existing MyCouncil accounts and change your preferred rates notice delivery method from post to email before February 21.
“You’ll then go into the draw to win up to $1000 off your next rates bill.”
All ratepayers who currently receive their rates notices by email will be automatically included in the draw. Terms and conditions apply.
Ratepayers who cannot make payment by the due date are encouraged to enter into an arrangement to pay their current rates by instalments by logging into MyCouncil or by calling council’s customer contact centre.
