SERVICES PROVIDED BY THE MUNICIPALITY
Municipalities must make sure that people in their areas have at least the basic services they need. There are a large number of services that they provide, the most important of which are:
- Water supply
- Sewage collection and disposal
- Refuse removal
- Street lighting
- Law Enforcement
WHY PAY FOR MUNICIPAL SERVICES?
Municipalities need a reliable source of revenue to provide basic services and perform their functions.
Revenue from property rates is used to fund services that benefit the community as a whole.
These include: constructing and maintaining streets, roads, sidewalks, street lighting, and storm
drainage facilities; building and operating clinics, parks, recreational facilities and cemeteries,
libraries and the administration of the municipality.
PAY-POINTS FOR MUNICIPAL SERVICES
Rates are paid monthly and are consolidated with your water and service bill.
You can make payment at
any one of our cash points at municipal offices or direct deposit. If you do not
receive an account, then you, as owner of the property, must request an account.
