In a notice, acting town clerk Sikhangele Zhou indicated that a second round of disconnections would start on Saturday and urged consumers who had challenges to make payment arrangements.
“Disconnections for the weekend of September 14 and 15, 2019 will focus on wards 1 (city centre), ward 5 comprising of Hillside, Four Winds, Famona, Hillcrest, Morningside and the surrounding areas and ward 6 covering Bellevue, Newton West, Barham Green, Montrose, Southworld and surrounding areas.
“Residents are, therefore, encouraged to bring their accounts up to date in order to avoid this inconvenience. Payments may be made at all district offices and at the revenue hall or through the mobile platforms or bank transfers. Council further advises that only the revenue hall will be open on Saturday, September 14, 2019 and Sunday September 15, 2019 from 8am to 3pm to facilitate for payment of accounts,” Zhou said.
Consumers were also being urged to pay 10% of the amount owed before they negotiate payment plans.
