Whitsunday Regional Council this week resolved to extend the discount period for the half yearly rates from the original due of Thursday 28 February to a new date of Friday 8 March.
Mayor Andrew Willcox said that due to the recent flooding experienced in the Townsville region, there was a delay in the delivery of rates notices to some residents.
“Council understands that not all residents have been affected however for those who have only recently received their notices, we’d like to allow them a few more weeks to take advantage of the discount period,” Mayor Willcox said.
“I encourage anyone who is experiencing financial hardship in paying their rates to contact our Rates Department to discuss individual payment arrangements.”
The extension of the discount period has been applied region-wide, to all ratepayers.
Residents wanting to make rates enquiries should contact Council’s Customer Service Centre on 1300 WRC QLD (972 753).
