Parkes Shire Council is pleased to welcome the arrival of eNotices for all ratepayers who wish to elect to receive their rates & water notices electronically.

This new service is provided through SaveMail, an online portal that enables ratepayers the convenience and ease to download and view their rate and water notices at no cost.

Parkes Shire Mayor Cr Ken Keith OAM said Council is committed to simplifying processes, reducing waste and improving access to information for our local community.

"Save Mail is a new, innovative way to view and download your rates notices, water notices, instalments and other information at your own convenience."

In the coming weeks, Parkes Shire residents will receive an invitation to register for SaveMail via a letter enclosed with the annual rates notice. Please note that you must register to enable access to view Rates & Water electronically.

"The registration process should only take a few minutes and once completed you will be able to receive your notices electronically from the next instalment notice," said Cr Keith.

"Council acknowledges that many members of our community have been affected by COVID-19 financial pressures and with that being said, Council have extended the due date for payment of the first quarter rates notices until 30 September 2020."

Residents experiencing difficulties paying their rates or registering for Save Mail are encouraged to contact our rates team on 6861 2333 or email payment.help@parkes.nsw.gov.au.
