Fees and charges

You need to pay for some Council services. Our current fees are valid until the end of June 2021.

Dog registration fees for 2020-21

The annual registration period is 1 July to 30 June. Following a review of Council fees and charges for 2020-21, some fee categories have been deleted from the animal control schedule. These are preferred owner (desexed dog), rural non-working, and rural non-working (desexed). We have also introduced an application fee for preferred owner status. This is a one-off fee of $60 that will be charged for applications from 1 July onwards.
