Congratulations to Robert and Elvera Toscano who are the recent winners of the Rates Incentive Scheme.
The Toscanos have advised that they wish to spread their cash prize locally between Woolworths, Canegrowers Mitre 10, Harvey Norman, Wild Local Prawns and Chiesa and Sons Butchery.
Mr Toscano commented that the Rates Incentive Scheme is a fantastic initiative and he was very surprised to receive the phone call with the good news from Council. Robert and Elvera were extremely grateful and are looking forward to supporting local businesses.
Ratepayers who pay their rates in full and on time are entered in the half yearly Rates prize draw. The prize is $2,000, which must be spent within the Hinchinbrook Shire.
Council continues to facilitate the Rates Incentive Scheme in effort to assist local businesses and encourage local spending.
