Coun­cil on­line ser­vices boost

East Kilbride News - - NEWS - Colin Pater­son

An East Kil­bride coun­cil­lor has wel­comed the launch of two new on­line ser­vices.

Ratepay­ers and coun­cil ten­ants can now check their bal­ances us­ing a com­puter, tablet or smart­phone.

And East Kil­bride East rep­re­sen­ta­tive Gla­dys Miller has given the scheme the thumbs up.

The fi­nance and cor­po­rate re­sources com­mit­tee chair said: “My­ac­count is an ex­tremely handy and se­cure way to keep on track with your coun­cil tax bill, and if you are a coun­cil ten­ant, you can ac­cess your rent ac­count.

“We will add more coun­cil ser­vices over time and will keep you in­formed of any changes.”

My­ac­count is a free and se­cure ser­vice which checks who you are and al­lows you to use one ac­count to ac­cess a num­ber of pub­lic ser­vices, in­clud­ing other coun­cils and some NHS ser­vices.

All you need to reg­is­ter is an e-mail ac­count, and once reg­is­tered, you will be e-mailed your sign-in de­tails.

You can ac­cess my­ac­count from the top right cor­ner on the home page of the coun­cil’s web­site, www. south­la­nark­shire.gov.uk
