Ovens & Murray Advertiser - - NEWS -

INDIGO Shire ratepay­ers that were over­charged 70 cents will be cred­ited in next year’s rates.

Put down as a cod­ing er­ror, Indigo Shire res­i­dents were charged an ex­tra 70 cents on their rates with Cr Di Shep­heard say­ing it won’t hap­pen again at the coun­cil meet­ing on Tues­day night.

“We were all quite con­cerned when we saw what hap­pened,” she said.

“It’s only a small amount of money, which makes no dif­fer­ence, it’s still a mis­take.”

The mo­tion was passed unan­i­mously to credit ratepay­ers 70 cents in next year’s fees.

The er­ror in the rates charge was re­ported to Es­sen­tial Ser­vices Com­mis­sion
