Withdrawal of supplementary rates notices - update
Council staff have started the process of withdrawing the supplementary rate notices.
When paying your rates instalment for the second quarter of 2014-2015 year, please deduct the amount shown on your 2013-14 supplementary notice from the instalment balance. This remaining balance is the amount you should pay for the second quarter. Rates notices will be correctly amended in time for the third quarter instalment which will be generated in January 2015.
If you require further assistance, please contact Council's rates department on 6285 6000.
2014-2015 2nd Instalment Rates Notices
Due to an error by Council's third party printers, the rates notices issued were printed with the following errors:
- Period date located on the top right hand corner under the due date was "1 July 13 to 30 June 14" and should read "1 July 14 to 30 June 15".
- The water consumption charges table contained the usage charge rates relating to the 2013/2014 and not the 2014/2015 rating period. The actual water usage charges however were calculated using the correct rates.
Please not that the errors will not impact on the amount payable on your rates notice or any rates and charges calculated that are included. There will also be no impact on the due date of payment. Council's printers have issued new rates notices.
Council plans to meet with the printer to review the current process to determine what else could be done in the future to prevent this form occurring again.
