Win $1000 off your mid-year rates no­tice

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - NEWS -

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.

For rates in­quiries, email coun­cil at [email protected] sun­shinecoast.qld.gov.au or phone (07) 5475 7542 Mon­day to Fri­day.
