Gladstone Region residents are reminded that half-yearly water access and sewerage charges will accompany next month’s water consumption notice.
Gladstone Regional Council last year elected to change the way it issues rates notices, beginning with the 2017/18 financial year, to break payments into more manageable portions for ratepayers.
The first portion of the half-yearly charges appeared on last September’s rates notice with the second portion of the usual annual charges to appear on the notices going out to the public on March 5.
Gladstone Region Mayor Matt Burnett said Council’s discount for early payments applied to the second half-yearly notices.
“Payments received by April 4 will attract a 10 percent discount and those received by May 5 will draw a five percent discount,” Councillor Burnett said.
“Payments can be made via a number of methods listed on the notices, including Council’s secure Online Services platform.”
