MRC COVID-19 Rate Relief

1 May 2020

MacDonnell Regional Council (MRC) has put in place special measures to assist the rebuilding of businesses and communities in and around the MRC local government area. In recognising that pastoralists, roadhouses, resorts and other tourist ventures have been severely impacted during the COVID-19 pandemic, MRC resolved to put special measures in place to provide businesses with financial support, now and as they prepare for recovery.

MRC offers financial supports to local business operators and contractors: 

1. through rates relief, 

2. by applying additional weighting in its procurement process to support local suppliers, and 

3. by ensuring the continued expenditure through Council operations.
