The January 18 deadline for paying water consumption notices in the Burdekin Shire is fast approaching.
Burdekin Shire Council CEO Matthew Magin said water consumption payments were due on Monday and reminded residents that any overdue balances would attract an 11 per cent compounding interest charge calculated on the daily balance.
“I would urge ratepayers to make their payments by the due date to avoid paying any extra interest,” he said.
“If ratepayers are having difficulty paying the amount in full, any payment made will help reduce the amount of interest charged.”
Mr Magin said the easiest payment method was Bpay.
“Just be sure to use the customer reference number shown on your notice, do not combine payments for multiple notices and ensure payments are applied to the correct Council account,” he said.
“Council has several Biller numbers which are unique to the type of account you are paying such as rates, animal registration and debtors’ invoices.”
Please refer to your water consumption notice for all available payment options and for further information please visit Council’s website www.burdekin.qld.gov.au or contact Council’s Customer Service Centre on (07) 4783 9800.
