At the last ordinary meeting of Council, Melton City Councillor, Steve Abboushi urged Council and residents to support the “Keep Me Posted” initiative.
Keep me Posted is a campaign advocating for the right of every Australian to choose, free of charge, how they receive important information.
More and more, business and service providers are restricting access to paper bills and statements.
The campaign is well supported by interest groups, charities, political representatives and businesses who represent Australians disadvantaged by the lack of choice, or who simply do not agree with the status quo.
Many Australians prefer to receive their invoices and bank statements on paper due to reasons such as, lack of internet access, digital abilities, security concerns with online fraud or simply for convenience.
Others prefer email for practical reasons. Either way, it’s important that Australians have the right to choose.
