Error on the latest instalment notice.

It has been brought to our attention that some residents have received inaccurate rates notices from our printing contractor.

Although the amounts are correct on the notice, the dates for the fourth instalment are incorrect. We have advised the printing contractor to reissue correct instalment notices and these will be forthcoming shortly.

The fourth instalment notice should read the following dates – posting date 15/4/16, deduct payment since 12/4/16, due date 31/05/16.

We apologise for any confusion.
