|Emergency Services Levy (26-Apr-17)
Residents will notice a new Emergency Services Levy added onto their next instalment notice. From 1 July 2017, the NSW Government has introduced a fairer system for funding community fire and emergency services. At present these services are funded by a levy on your insurance but as of 1 July 2017 this will be removed and will now be paid through your Council rates notice.
From 1 July 2017, all properties in NSW, not just those insured, will directly contribute to the Fire and Emergency Services Levy.
Like Council rates, you may pay this levy annually or quarterly.
Further information in relation to this levy can be found in a leaflet enclosed with the 4th instalment rates notice or by visiting http://fireandemergencyserviceslevy.nsw.gov.au/
