Buloke Shire Council Assistance

What Council has already put into place to support the community:

  • Council will hold interest on debt accumulated during the COVID-19 pandemic. The interest hold will begin from the declaration of the State of Emergency (16 March 2020) until the 30 September 2020, to allow time for the debt to be paid without interest.

  • During the COVID-19 pandemic, Council will hold off on legal action for the collection of rates and charges.

  •  We are making every reasonable effort to ensure payment of invoiced amounts within 15 days of invoicing.

  • Council will allow additional time for the payment of pet registrations which fell due on 10 April 2020.

  • Developed a Community Support Team consisting of staff, Community Neighbourhood Houses and community members. This is a reference group set up for information sharing between Buloke towns during the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Developed a Business Support Team which is hard a work reaching out to businesses to understand their position and help them find and access the support they need.

  • We have elevated our communications including social media, print media and radio.

  • A dedicated website resource for COVID-19 has been developed with current local service information and links to State and Federal government information
