GEORGE NEWS - Due to the closure of printing companies during the 21-day lockdown, George municipal consumer accounts that would normally be posted in the first week of the month will now only be posted on 17 April.
Residents who receive their service accounts via e-mail will not be affected.
Consumers are requested to pay the same amount on their service account as the February statement. Municipal App subscribers will be able to access their statement amounts. No interest will be levied for April.
Furthermore, no meter readings will take place for April and estimations will be utilised by the finance department.
George Municipality requests the public to phone in with queries, correspond via e-mail where possible (firstname.lastname@example.org) or use online services where available.
