STATEMENT BY UGU DISTRICT MUNICIPALITY:
With a view to implement Ugu District Municipality’s credit control policy, the municipality will be cutting off supply of its water and sanitation services to several institutions, government departments, businesses and customers over non-payment of water accounts effective from Wednesday, November 11.
Our credit control policy clearly states that consumers who are in arrears with their municipal accounts and those who have not made arrangements with council or credit control department will have their water supply and other municipal services suspended, restricted or terminated.
In light of this, Ugu District Municipality will be taking stringent measures to defaulters who continue to ‘shrug off’ several requests and notices to settle overdue accounts. Not only does this hinder the municipality’s ability to provide adequate services but this also deprives communities of receiving their basic human right.
Consequently, water services to these institutions or individuals concerned will remain cut until they remedy the situation by settling their arrears.
Payments can be made at Ugu District Municipality offices in Port Shepstone, Oslo Beach, Harding, Park Rynie as well as satellite offices; The South African Post Office and their agencies, ABSA bank and Easy-Pay outlets such as Pick n ’ Pay and Checkers.
Arrangements can also be made through our revenue collections Manager Busi Ncane at Busisiwe.Ncane@ugu.gov.za
