Vaccination status related to Council services and rates
A number of people have queried their vaccination status relative to Council services availability and rates. Below is our response based on guidance from the Office of the Auditor General.
- Rates are set to have facilities available for use, and it is ratepayers’ personal choice to use council services or not, just as it is their choice to be unvaccinated.
SWDC will not be refunding or rebating any rates as a result of any ratepayers' decision to be unvaccinated.
