At the same time Council needs to ensure sufficient income is generated to maintain, replace and upgrade infrastructure in order to provide the quantity and quality of services that guarantees the achievement of Councils goals. Information on the services funded by Council rates is included within this Municipal Plan, a summary of which is provided to all ratepayers by means of a brochure provided with their rates notice. Council seeks to lower the social and economic impact of its Rating Policy through: The provision of a subsidy to eligible pensioners in addition to the rebate provided to them by the Territory Health Services. Consideration of the issues experienced by individuals suffering from financial hardship, further discussed below in part 2.1.2. Allowing for payment of rates by four instalments. 2.1.2 Rebates and Concessions on Rates and Charges Policy Statement Number 510 Council deals with ratepayers and stakeholders on a daily basis. The provision of efficient administration of the Councils rating system requires that officers have the guidance and authority to act in certain matters on Councils behalf. Council recognises that individuals can experience difficulty in meeting their responsibilities for the payment of rates and that it is appropriate where financial hardship has been demonstrated to consider granting a concession for the payment of rates. The concession granted can be either a waiving of rates levied or a deferment. A review of all policies and their contemporary relevance is presently being undertaken. Page 13
