Yarri rates notice delay


Yarriambia­ck Shire Council has informed ratepayers of a delay in the distributi­on of 2021-2022 rates notices.

Council chief executive Jessie Holmes said a change in a processing system had delayed distributi­on of the notices.

“As a result, the first instalment payment date has been extended to late October 2021,” she said.

“Rates can either be paid in full by February 15, 2022, or by four instalment­s. The four instalment­s are due on October 29, 2021, November 30, 2021, February 28, 2022 and May 31, 2022.”

Ms Holmes said if rate payers were concerned they could not meet the October 29 due date for the first instalment, they could call the revenue co-ordinator on 53987 0100 or email rates@yarriambia­

“You will be granted an extension to pay the first and second instalment by November 30, or an alternativ­e payment plan can be arranged,” she said.

Ms Holmes said the council did not charge interest on instalment amounts unless they were unpaid by May 31, the fourth-instalment due date. When paying in full, interest would be applied after February 15.

Ms Holmes said more informatio­n was available from the council’s revenue co-ordinator.
