Overwhelming response from rate­payers in Suva and Lami has led the municipal councils to extend the seven per cent discount on rates for anoth­er month.

It was previously announced that ratepay­ers paying their rates in full would get a sev­en per cent discount in August, six per cent discount in September and five in October.

Suva and Lami special administrator chair Isikeli Tikoduadua said ratepayers who were willing to pay their rates in full should be given incentives to do so.

“We had a fruitful meeting with the Suva Ratepayers Association, and we have decid­ed that the seven per cent discount will be extended for another month,” he said.

“We have seen an increase in the number of ratepayers paying their rates in full, and we as a council recognise the efforts made by our ratepayers.

“In return we will continue to provide the best services ratepayers of Suva and Lami deserve.”

Suva’s ratepayers who paid rates in full in­creased from 79 per cent to 81 per cent at the end of the last fiscal year.

The defaulters only amount to 19 per cent who collectively owe $9 million as principal and $23 million with interest.
