Declare your debt to make arrangements

2015-06-30 06:00

Local ward councillors are calling on residents to come forward if they are behind in paying their municipal accounts.

From 1 July more harsh measures could be implemented on the accounts of those who owe on their City rates and taxes.

According to the City of Cape Town’s policies, residents who are in arrears with their rates and taxes may suffer penalties and deductions from their electricity units.

As of the new financial year this could mean that a late payer’s electricity gets completely cut off.

Visit your nearest cash office or ward councillor to make an arrangement to pay off your City debt.

A rebate can also be given to those who qualify. Call 0860 103 089 or inquire at the local offices.
