Residents to re-register for free basic services

01 February 2018

Kouga Municipality will be re-registering residents for free basic services over the next five months.

Executive Mayor Elza van Lingen said the municipality would be conducting an Equitable Shares (EQS) drive from February to June 2018 so as to ensure that all qualifying residents receive free basic services. 

"It is very important that all residents who already receive EQS re-register during this time so that they continue receiving the free services. New applications are also invited," she said. 

Free basic services (Equitable Shares) are available to households with a combined gross monthly income of R3200 or less. 

Those who are registered, receive 50kwh electricity plus the basic charge for free, 12kl water plus the basic charge for free, free refuse removal and free sewerage (based on 12kl water consumption). They also do not pay the Environmental Management Fee (EMF) levy and rates for an additional R85 000 on their properties.

Residents are invited to register per ward, as per the following schedule:

* Ward 4: 5 to 8 February at the Humansdorp municipal offices
