Port Pirie Regional Council can tailor support for ratepayers

Some Port Pirie ratepayers could be entitled to a range of support mechanisms on rate payments because of financial uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Port Pirie Regional Council has established a period of no fines or interest on late payments until June 30 this year, with other options available if needed, ranging from payment plans, waiving of fines and interest and also rates.

As the situation is continually changing, the council has stated it will be monitoring the situation to understand how to best help the community with financial support measure and balancing the need to ensure council services continue.

The council can tailor support to individuals and is encouraging those who need help to contact the rates officer on 8633 9734 or email rates@pirie.sa.go.au for a confidential discussion.
