A month left to score Gladstone rates discount

RATEPAYERS still have time to take advantage of a 10% discount for Gladstone Regional Council rates by ensuring their full payment is cleared by Friday.

Mayor Matt Burnett said paying directly to the council was the safest method to ensure rates payments were cleared in time for the discount to be applied.

"Customers can do this either online through council's new online services platform or by visiting any administration centre," he said.

Cr Burnett said ratepayers who could not meet the September 16 deadline could still receive a 5% discount if their full payment was cleared by October 17.

"This year, council reintroduced its 5% discount option for customers who needed a little more time to pay their rates," he said.

Cr Rick Hansen said ratepayers could also set up a payment plan if they could not make a full payment within the 60-day notice period.
