10,000+ in the Moreton Bay Region sign up to eMBRC and its not too late
More than 10,000 ratepayers across the Moreton Bay Region have already signed up to receive their rates notices online, via council’s new eMBRC system.
On 1 July, council invited residents to start signing up to the online service, with the first quarterly rates notices to be emailed as a PDF file on 1 October. Today, the 10,000th user signed up to receive their rates notices this way.
Residents can opt in and out of the service at any time as their circumstances change.
Council’s Corporate Services Spokesperson Councillor Adrian Raedel said he wasn’t surprised that more than 10,000 ratepayers had already opted in.
“This service will allow ratepayers to keep track of their rates notices from anywhere, even if they are travelling, living at an address that differs from where their mail gets delivered, or in hospital,” Councillor Raedel said.
“We knew this would really appeal to people in our region who have to travel frequently for work, as well as those who own a property here, but have no fixed residential address because they are following the grey nomad trail or some other reason.”
“Of course, many of us just want to do their bit for the environment too.”
Signing up to eMBRC is easy. Just go to www.moretonbay.qld.gov.au/embrc, select your property, confirm your details and nominate your email account.
“eMBRC is an additional option to the delivery methods we already had in place, including good old snail mail, MyPost Digital Mailbox and BPAY View,” Councillor Raedel said.
“Now residents just have more choice and convenience.”
eMBRC is available to all ratepayers in the Moreton Bay Region who can access the internet.
