Media Release - Rates Incentive Scheme Winners

17th December 2021

Congratulations to Stephen and Sandra Gurney who are the recent winners of the $2,000 Rates Incentive Scheme prize.

The Gurney’s have opted to spread their cash prize locally between Bossi Boots, Blanco’s Quality Meats, Hinchinbrook Rural Supplies and Ingham Manufactures Mitre 10.

Sandra Gurney commented that the Rates Incentive Scheme is a fantastic initiative and she was very surprised to receive the good news from Council. Sandra was extremely grateful and is 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 an effort to assist local businesses and encourage local spending.
