Register to receive your municipal account via email

2017-05-11 06:01

KOUGA’S municipal accounts for April 2017 are in the mail and expected to reach residents and businesses during the course of the week.

Executive Mayor Elza van Lingen says the municipality wishes to apologise for the delay in both the emailing and posting of accounts.

“The delay was caused by technical difficulties beyond our control and compounded by the many public holidays during the month of April,” she says.

“As the accounts were sent out later than usual, the municipality will only be charging interest on outstanding amounts for this period from June 1.”

The Mayor says residents are encouraged to register for the municipality’s online service so as to receive their accounts via email or to view their accounts online through the “Ratepayers Info System” on the municipal website.

“The online service was introduced to enhance support to residents and ratepayers. Once registered, residents can access their municipal account no matter where they are, as long as they have access to email or our website,” she explains.
