Information about available concession rebates and eligibility criteria.
From July 1, the Fire Services Levy will be removed from insurance premiums and replaced by a property-based levy collected with council rates. This change means all property owners will contribute a fair share to funding our fire services.
Property rates can be paid in a lump sum payment or by four instalments. Payments are accepted by credit card, BPAY, mail or in person
If you have difficulty paying a Council rate or charge by the due date, you can apply to have a suitable payment arrangement put in place.
