Envelope shortage leads to account backlog
Johannesburg - About 180 000 Tshwane residents did not receive their municipal accounts for January because the municipality ran out of envelopes, The Star reported on Friday.
On Thursday the municipality issued a statement saying their supplier had not delivered enough envelopes due to festive season closures.
The city sends 800 000 accounts every month.
It was hoping to clear the backlog in a day or two and had put the service provider on "performance terms".
Residents could use a previous month's account to make a payment.
