rates and water and effluent charges where applicable. Application
forms, which include information on the concessions, are available
from Council at the contact locations listed on the first page.

District Offices or the Department of Human Services. An eligible
pensioner must hold a Pension Card, State Concession Card or be a
T.P.I. Pensioner. They must also be responsible for the payment of

A refund of rates will be paid to an eligible pensioner if Council is advised that a concession applies and the rates have already been paid.
The Department of Human Services may assist with the payment of Council rates for your principal place of residence (remissions are not available on vacant land or rental premises). Please contact your nearest Department of Human Services office for details.
