Over one thousand people have signed up for Argyll and Bute Council’s new council tax online billing service – and one of them has been rewarded with the prize of an iPad.

Dunoon resident Robin Danks signed up for the e-billing service and was entered into the prize draw for an iPad, provided by Gandlake, the technology company behind the software which supports the council service.

He was delighted to find out he had won and received his prize from Argyll and Bute Council’s Revenue and Benefits Manager, Fergus Walker, on Thursday 1 May.

Robin said: “I’m really pleased to have won the iPad. I was looking for an alternative way to pay my council tax; I checked the council website and found details of the new e-billing service. I signed up there and then – it’s very easy to do.

“I’ve found it to be a really convenient way of managing my council tax – I can pay any time of day or night, I can see exactly what’s happening on my account and it’s very quick and easy. It’s exactly the option I was looking for.”

John Gandley, Gandlake’s Managing Director added, “It’s great to be involved with Argyll and Bute Council in a project to help citizens access services online.
