Paying your rates online could win you a night out or a free gym membership, thanks to a competition being run by the Harvey Shire Council.

Shire staff are encouraging residents to sign up for E-Rates through the council’s website before rates notices are issued later this month.

Ratepayers who sign up for E-Rates during July will go into the draw to win one of 25 double passes to see a show of their choice between August and December at the Harvey Recreation and Cultural Centre, or one of 25 membership packages at the Leschenault Leisure Centre.

Shire chief executive officer Annie Riordan said there were many benefits of signing up for E-Rates.

“We would love to see our residents signing up for this convenient and efficient service,” Ms Riordan said. “Notices can’t get lost in the post and residents are able to view their notices whether they are at home or not.”

She said when residents signed up they nominate an email address where their notices are sent to, instead of receiving their notice via post.

It is also more environmentally sustainable not having to print as many notices. “There’s no better time than now to sign up, as residents get the chance to win tickets to one of the shows at the cultural centre or to experience the Leschenault Leisure Centre,” she said.

This pack from LLC includes free gym access, groups fitness classes, adult and child swim passes, and a free creche pass.
