Intention to Rest 2010/2011 Rates
Pursuant to section 119 of the Local Government Rating) Act 2002, the Hurunui District Council gives notice of its intention to set the 2010/2011 rates again at its meeting on 30 June 2011.
The Rates are to be reset at the same values as disclosed in the 2010/2011 Annual Plan:
Due Date for Payment of Rates
All rates will be payable in four instalments on due dates as follows:
|One||20 August 2010|
|Two||22 November 2010|
|Three||21 February 2011|
|Four||20 May 2011|
That pursuant to sections 57 and 58 of the Local Government (Rating) Act 2002,
the Council prescribes the following penalties to be added to unpaid rates:
i. A charge of 10 per cent of the amount of any instalment that has been
assessed after 1 July 2010 and which is unpaid after the due date.
ii. A charge of 10 per cent on so much of any rates levied before 1 July 2010
which remain unpaid on 30 June 2010.
iii. A charge of 10 per cent on any rate to which a penalty has been added
under (ii) if the rates remain unpaid on 1 January 2011.
The reason for resetting the rates is due to:
- an irregularity in setting the penalty component of the Council’s rating regime; and
- because penalties need to be set at the same time as rates are set for that particular financial year, the Council is resetting all its rates.
