Rates payments go post-free

DERWENT Valley Council rates payments will not be able to be made at post offices after the end of the current financial year. Council accountant John Bradley told a recent budget workshop that late confirmation of the council's arrangements with Australia Post meant this year's rates notices had to be ordered without the inclusion of post offices as a payment option.

Mr Bradley said all other options would remain in place, such as payment in person at the council chambers, by mail, BPay, over the phone, via the internet, Centrepay and at any branch of the Commonwealth Bank. Some 3500 rates payments were processed thorough Australia Post annually and this option would be reviewed prior to the setting of the 2014-15 rates.
