In addition to the above, ratepayers and residents can also elect to use Council's Direct Debit System. The Direct Debit Request Form is to be used when you want Council to deduct monies from your bank account for rates and water. These deductions can be scheduled for any weekday and the deduction frequency is flexible in that they can be made weekly, fortnightly, monthly or quarterly.

Please print out the form, complete and sign the form, then post, fax or deliver it to Council

Financial Difficulty:  Any Ratepayer having difficulty meeting their Rate commitment should contact Council's Rates Officer, as early as possible, who will endeavour to make arrangements which will assist you wherever possible.
