Outreach to register households for service subsidies

06 February 2017

Households with a combined monthly income of R3000 or less have been invited to register for municipal service subsidies.

Kouga Executive Mayor Elza van Lingen said the municipality would be holding an outreach to all wards in February and March to register new applicants and re-register existing beneficiaries for the equitable share programme.

“The subsidies are available to households whose combined gross monthly income is R3000 or less. That’s roughly the value of two state pensions,” she said.

Successful applicants will receive the following service subsidies: 

  • Free 50kwh electricity plus basic charge
  • Free 12kl water plus basic charge
  • Free monthly refuse, sewerage (based on 12kl water) and the Environmental Management Fee levy
  • Free additional R85 000 on the value of their property for rates

 The Mayor said the outreach would take place from 8:30am to 3pm at the following venues:

  • 13 February at the Sea Vista Hall for the communities of Sea Vista, St Francis Bay and Cape St Francis
  • 14 February at the Oyster Bay Hall for the Oyster Bay community
  • 15 February at the Katrien Felix Hall for Thornhill
  • 16 February at the Loerie Hall for Loerie
  • 20 February at the Dan Sandi Hall for the communities of Ramaphosa Village and Patensie
  • 21 and 22 February at the Vusumzi Landu Hall for all Hankey areas, excluding Weston
  • 27 February at the Alec Ntantiso Hall for Weston
  • 28 February at the Kruisfontein Civic Hall for Kruisfontein, Gill Marcus and Die Berg
  • 1 March at the Kruisfontein Civic Hall for Vaaldam, Johnson’s Ridge, Arcadia, Graslaagte and Moerasrivier
  • 2 March at the KwaNomzamo Hall for KwaNomzamo
  • 6 March at the Aston Bay Hall for Aston Bay and Paradise Beach
  • 7 March at the Pellsrus Hall for Pellsrus, Tokyo Sexwale and Mandela Bay
  • 8 March at the Pellsrus Hall for residents of Ocean View
  • 9 March at the Newton Hall for Jeffreys Bay Central, C-Place, Wavecrest and Kabeljauws

Applicants have to be present in person so as to complete the application form themselves. The following documents must accompany all applications:

  • Sworn affidavit if unemployed
  • Proof of usufruct (if owner is deceased, a letter of authority and death certificate).
