Ratepayers are reminded that Council issues three water usage accounts during each financial year with the first being sent in September, the second in January and the final account in May.
Ratepayers need to also be aware that charges for water consumption are calculated on a cumulative basis over the three reads taken during the financial year and that the above allocations DO NOT apply for each individual read. Further information can be obtained from Council’s Water and Revenue Officer on (02) 6953 0905.
