Municipality recommences cutting of electricity

22 June 2017

The grace period has lapsed and Kouga Municipality is set to start cutting the electricity of households whose municipal accounts are in arrears.

Executive Mayor Elza van Lingen said the municipality had given account holders grace till 20 June 2017 to settle their debt or to make arrangements to pay it off.

“The municipality put credit control measures such as the blocking and cutting electricity on hold for this grace period.

“We wish to thank everyone who visited the municipality to make arrangements to settle their arrears.

“The municipality will now start blocking or cutting electricity again to those households who have not made arrangements.”

She further reminded residents that all municipal pay-points (cashiers) will close at 12 noon on Friday, 30 June 2017.

“The early closure is necessary so as to allow the municipality to close off its books for the 2016/2017 financial year. Friday is the last day of the current financial year,” she explained.

She said the arrangement would only affect those wanting to make payments directly at municipal offices, including the Kouga Traffic Department at Humansdorp.Residents will still, however, be able to make internet banking payments or pay at external pay-points such as the Post Office, pay@, Ackermans, Shoprite/Checkers/Usave, Spar, Pick n Pay, Pep Stores, EasyPay, My eBills and Boxer.
