Council Rates

Change of Address

Ratepayers should always notify in writing any change of postal address.


Rate Enquiries: For further information regarding rates or payment difficulties, please contact the Rates Officer, Josie Hall on 8633 9734.


In accordance with the provisions of Section 181 of the Local Government Act a statutory fine of 2% must be added to rates unpaid by the due date. Each month thereafter a further fine of the prescribed percentage must be added. It is therefore in your interest to pay rates as soon as possible.

Recovery of Rates

Where rates are not paid by the applicable due dates, monies owing may be recovered by action in any Court of Competent Jurisdiction or by requiring the occupier to pay the rent to the Council in satisfaction of such rates, or by sale of property where the rates have been due and owing for not less than three years.
