Frequently asked questions about COVID-19
How do the COVID-19 restrictions impact the City of Rockingham? How can I contact the City? Is there contact tracing at City venues and facilities? What recovery support is available to me? Have rates been frozen?
The State Government has released its WA Recovery Plan which identifies 21 priorities for boosting the economy, supporting the community and building infrastructure following the impacts of coronavirus.
The City of Rockingham COVID-19 Local Recovery Coordination Group (LRCG) has been established to support the implementation of the plan. Visit Rockingham Recovery to find information about what resources, funding and other opportunities are available to City of Rockingham residents and businesses as part of the plan.
What if I am having trouble paying my rates? Is there any financial support available?
In March, Council resolved to not increase rates in 2020/2021.
This means the City of Rockingham is not collecting any more rates than last year. The total rates collected (the rates ‘yield’) will be the same as last year.
You can read more about it in our media release.
