Community Empowerment


Residents who lodged disputes on their property rates will receive the outcome of their objections from the City by the end of October.

This was said by Thembisa2 Customer Care Centre, Manager Makhosazana Dhladhla, during the Siyaqhuba Service Delivery programme on Thursday, 23 September.

“All affected consumers in Hospitalview and other areas that submitted their objections in June and July will be responded to from the end of September.

“I am sure that by the end of October most would have received responses. It will be up to them to accept or dispute further. The consumers can also arrange with the finance department on how they can make the payments. This will include being put on the indigent list if they qualify,” Dhladhla said.

The City has more than 144 000 registered residents benefiting from the Indigent Support Policy. The main aim of the policy is to assist indigent households who are unable to pay for basic services.

Residents can apply to register on the indigent list by visiting the indigent office at their nearest CCC.
