Monash Council made the unprecedented decision in its 2020/21 Budget to introduce a waiver on Council rates for the 2020/21 financial year as a gesture of support for the Monash community in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In its 2021/22 Budget, Council extended its rates deferral option until 30 June 2022 to help people in our community who are struggling. To qualify, ratepayers only need to make an application declaring how COVID-19 has impacted their ability to pay their rates and/or other charges. People who applied last year in the first package of support will be automatically eligible for the extension and need not apply again.
Council will also waive the annual permit fees for footpath dining areas until 30 June 2022 to help traders who have been severely impacted by lockdowns and closures.
Our Back Our Business - Shop Local campaign is continuing, featuring a free register for businesses to share what they are doing and the innovative ways they've kept their businesses going. Council will promote the register to the wider community.
