Western Downs rates arriving in letterboxes

WESTERN Downs Regional Council ratepayers will start to receive their rates notices for the July-December 2015 period this week.

Spokesperson for Corporate Support Councillor Ian Rasmussen said he encouraged property owners to take advantage of the 10% discount on offer.

"If ratepayers settle their notices in full on or before the due date of Wednesday 30 September, by either paying in-person at any customer service centre, by post, phone or online, they will receive a 10% discount," he said.

"If paying electronically, remember to allow plenty of time for the council to receive your payment as it can take up to four days, depending on your financial institution, for the payment to be processed.

"Also be sure to use the correct details and reference numbers on the front of your notice, as the biller codes are different to that of water and gas notices.

"I would also like to encourage ratepayers to contact the council immediately if, in the next couple of weeks they still haven't received their rates notice."

Cr Rasmussen also reminded ratepayers that they are now able to register to receive their notices by email.

"Property owners who prefer to receive their notices electronically can now also opt-in to get their water and rates notices sent to them by email," he said.

Customers with any questions about their rates notice can contact Council on 1300 COUNCIL or via info@wdrc.qld.gov.au.
