Little Mountain couple win their rates!

Published:

Ditching paper rates notices in favour of email has paid off for a Little Mountain couple who are the lucky winners of Sunshine Coast Council’s ‘Win Your Rates’ competition, which ran from July 21 to August 21.    

The competition encouraged Sunshine Coast ratepayers to receive their rates notices electronically rather than via traditional postal services and offered a prize incentive of up to $1000 off their rates bill. Rate payers who already received their rates notices by email were automatically included in the draw.

The Little Mountain couple said they were very excited to receive a call from council notifying them of their win.

“Having our rates notice delivered electronically just makes sense. We open the email, schedule the payment online and then forget about it. It’s that easy and at the same time we appreciate the savings to ratepayers and the environment!”

Corporate Strategy and Finance Portfolio Councillor Tim Dwyer said receiving rates notices via email provided more convenience for more ratepayers and environmental positives for the Sunshine Coast.

“I’d like to congratulate our latest winners of the ‘Win Your Rates’ competition and also commend them and all ratepayers on the Sunshine Coast who’ve made the switch from paper rates notices to receiving their notices electronically,” Cr Dwyer said.

“The aim of this competition is to encourage more ratepayers to receive their rates notices electronically and enable council to reduce the environmental impact of printing and mailing out rates notices using traditional postal services.

“Moving to an online system also allows ratepayers to receive their notices wherever they are, anywhere in the world and arrange payment in a more convenient and timely manner to ensure they don’t miss the on-time payment discount.

“So I encourage all ratepayers who are still receiving their notices in the post to visit council’s website, sign up to MyCouncil or login to their existing MyCouncil accounts and change their preferred rates notice delivery method from post to email.”

You’ll find a step-by-step guide to setting up your MyCouncil account and changing your preferred rates notice delivery method by visiting council’s website at www.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au. MyCouncil is an online dashboard where residents can interact with council, view their property, rates, business and animal details and make requests and payments.
