In recognition of the financial hardships many residents face after Tropical Cyclone Debbie, Whitsunday Regional Council will not be processing any direct debit payments until the end of April.
Ratepayers who have an arrangement with Council to pay their outstanding rates, will start their arrangement again in May 2017.
Many ratepayers have been severely impacted by Cyclone Debbie over the past week, and are experiencing unexpected costs.
In light of this, Council has agreed to give ratepayers a one month suspension of direct debit rate payments.
Whitsunday Regional Council Mayor Andrew Willcox said the suspension would help ease the pressure of upcoming financial difficulties after the cyclone.
“Tropical Cyclone Debbie has really hit us hard and so many of you are going to face extra bills and unexpected costs,” he said.
“This is one way the Council can help take some of the stress out of the next month.”
