Rates Remission Policy

To enable Council to refund or discount rates and rates-related penalties in certain situations.

The proposed policy would provide council with some flexibility in times of hardship where a large number of our community is affected. An example of when the policy could be applied is following a natural disaster.

Proposed changes to our Rates Remission Policy will allow Council to refund or discount rates and rates-related penalties (e.g. late fees) in some cases. The policy would be applied across the community affected rather than to an individual ratepayer.
