Rates by email moves up a gear

Media Release

Napier City Council ratepayers who receive their rates notices by post are being encouraged to sign up to receive rates notices by email.

Email service was initially introduced by the Napier City Council four years ago for property owners living overseas or outside the region and has grown steadily in response to customer demand.

Hawke’s Bay’s Councils – Napier, Hastings, Central Hawke’s Bay, Wairoa and Hawke’s Bay Regional Council – have been working on a new initiative, instigated by the Regional Council as part of their development of an email service for their annual rates. Partnering with local councils offers the opportunity to increase the uptake of the ‘rates by email’ service across the region, via a single application process for ratepayers.

It means if ratepayers sign up to receive their local authority rates by email, they can now also choose to receive their annual regional council rates by email.

Fliers announcing the joint initiative are being posted out this week with rates notices to Napier property owners.

“This is a great initiative and proves once again that the local councils are working cooperatively and collaboratively in the best interests of all ratepayers,” Napier Mayor Bill Dalton said.

For more information visit the Rates by Email page on the Napier City Council website.

Email rate notices are optional. Ratepayers who do not want to receive their rates by email will continue to receive them in the post.
