A new strategy for setting your rates

We’re developing a new strategy for how we set rates for residents and businesses in the shire. Rates are an important part of Council’s ability to deliver essential community infrastructure and services.

The Rating Strategy is about determining how we charge rates on different kinds of properties.

Find out more and share your feedback by completing our survey at shape.mountalexander.vic.gov.au/ratings-strategy.

COVID-19 restrictions ease

From Friday 28 May the density quotients for small-to-medium sized venues will be lifted across the state meaning Victorian’s live music venues, restaurants, bars and nightclubs will be able to welcome more patrons in a COVIDSafe way.

It is important that we all keep playing our part to help us all stay safe and stay open by checking in using the Victorian Government QR Code Service through the Service Victoria app.

All venues and businesses required to undertake electronic record keeping must use the Victorian Government QR Code Service to give contact tracers access to the best data quickly.
