Council provides financial relief to ratepayers

Central Coast Council has announced it may provide interest waivers on outstanding accounts until August 31 for those home owners who have been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.

Announcing the measures, mayor Cr Lisa Matthews said: "I want to assure the community that we are understanding of the hardships many are experiencing and we will be providing flexibility and financial assistance to support our residents."

Council has also halted debt recovery activities until May 31 and is offering hardship payment arrangements to allow ratepayers to organise payment plans over longer periods of time.

Mayor Lisa Matthews said that while Council is prioritising community safety, it is dedicating resources to help local businesses and residents withstand the financial effects of the pandemic.

Eligible pensioners are also provided with rebates on their rates notices and water accounts.

Council may seek further information to support requests for longer term assistance and interest waivers.
