While many of our services and facilities have been impacted, we're working hard to service the needs of our community.

COVID-19 is impacting our community physically, emotionally and financially
We understand times are tough, but know that we are here for you. We will get through this together.
If you’re having trouble paying your rates we can help with payment arrangements.
So if you need a hand during these unprecedented times, and would like to set up a payment arrangement plan please complete our online hardship form by clicking the button below. You can find out more about the 2020/21 annual rates notice here.
There's more we can do to help ease your burden.
In addition to our rates support we have also included things in our updated Financial Hardship Policy such as help with other fees, charges and fines.
We have also redesigned our community funding program to enable quick, responsive grants for local community groups and small businesses. Remaining grant funding in the 19/20 budget will be reallocated to the COVID-19 Recovery Grants Program.
