Win $1,000 off your Ballina council rates.

One lucky Ballina Shire ratepayer will win $1,000 off their 2019/20 rates and charges in a new competition to raise awareness about paper use.

Ballina Shire Council has launched the competition as they say each quarter they issue over 16,000 rates and charges notices.

The thousands of notices equates to about 113,000 sheets of paper every year, says Manager of Financial Services Linda Coulter. ‘We want to reduce these numbers, but we need the help of local ratepayers.’

‘We introduced the eRates service a couple of years ago to offer ratepayers an alternative to regular post,’ she says. ‘The service is particularly useful for property owners who live overseas or property managers who look after several investment properties.’

eRates subscribers receive their rates and charges notice direct to their nominated email inbox each quarter – no paper necessary. eRates allows users to save paper, receive their rates and charges notice faster, and reduces the chance of your notice being misplaced in the mail.

To enter, ratepayers must successfully subscribe to Ballina Council’s online eRates service before Monday 1 July 2019. To do this visit Council’s eRates service page and use your assessment number, email address, name, phone and address to complete the online form.
