Council launches competition to promote eNotices

Published: 16 Feb 2023

Mackay Regional Council is encouraging residents to register for eNotices to save time and the environment.

Mayor Greg Williamson said there were massive benefits for residents who sign up for eNotices.

“One of the great things about the online portal is it is always open, so you can view or pay current and historical notices any time online,” Mayor Williamson said.

“There’s also the benefit of immediate delivery of notices when they are issued, so there’s no delay in the mail. There’s also easy access to a range of online payment options and it reduces our environmental footprint,” he said.

“The online portal also has a lot of other things you can do online besides making a payment, including sending a general request, enquiring on your rates, doing an animal search, submitting building, plumbing or operational works applications and more.” 

As an incentive to go paper-free with council notices, $1500 in Porters Mitre 10 gift cards are up for grabs as part of the campaign.

Porters Group CEO, Hayden Cargill, said they were excited to come on board as a sponsor of the promotion.

“We are thrilled to support council’s initiative to shift towards eNotices as this is an excellent step towards sustainability and reducing our environmental impact,” Mr Cargill said.

“Porters is passionate about supporting our community and the continuous growth across the Mackay and Whitsundays region,” he said.

Council’s eNotices competition opens today, February 17, and will close midnight Sunday, March 19. To register, residents need to go to the council website, click the link “Rates and metered water notices”, click the "sign up" tab and enter their email address and unique reference number.

The unique reference number can be found on the last rates/water notice, which was mailed out on February 13.

eNotices registration is currently available for rates, water, trade waste and backflow licence renewal, with animal registration renewal and health and regulatory licencing available from June 1.
