MEDIA INVITE: ADM TO OBSERVE MANDELA DAY IN AMAHLATHI LM'S NGCAMNGENI AND NGQEQE COMMUNITIES 

 AMATHOLE HEADQUARTERS, 15 JULY 2019

 

On a yearly basis, the month of July in South Africa commemorates the Mandela Month whilst also celebrating his birthday on the 18th by spending the day towards the upliftment of the vulnerable individuals and communities.  As per norm, Amathole District Municipality [ADM] will be joining the rest of the country in heeding the call to play its part in celebrating Nelson Mandela’s life and legacy to change the world for the better. 

 

In commemorating his 101 years, ADM will roll out two activities for the benefit of Ngcamngeni, Ngqeqe and Phalintloko communities.

 

As a water and sanitation service focused institution, ADM will ensure that construction of disabled-oriented ablution facilities for the benefit of eight elderly community members is the order of the day in Ngqeqe & Phalintloko Villages, both in ward 11.

 

At Ngcamngeni Village in Debe Nek’s ward 10, ADM will be visiting a centre catering for a maximum of 70 elderly in the area. Whilst 32 are daily visitors to the centre, 17 are bedridden and 21 are housebound. ADM will assist with their current challenges with the goal of ensuring that the centre operates to its maximum. 

 

The media is invited to attend and cover the event.

DEBT REDUCTION PAYMENT INCENTIVE SCHEME

on .

The Amathole District Municipality has embarked on a debt reduction payment scheme to encourage residents and businesses to pay for municipal services.

 

The Council meeting held on 31 May 2019, resolved to provide an incentive framework detailed below, within which qualifying debts of participants to the scheme will be written off in exchange for prompt, and timeous payments of future accounts rendered by the Municipality. The incentive scheme excludes government departments, parastatals and Municipalities.

Eligibility for participation in the scheme is subject to terms and conditions as contained in the approved debt incentive scheme policy; applications received for participation in the scheme are to be received within the validity period of the scheme, which will commence on 1 June 2019 and will terminate on 31 August 2019.

The Municipality strongly urges all residents and consumers to take advantage of this once off offer; participation in this scheme is aimed at providing the consumer a rare opportunity to both save money, and bring their municipal accounts into good standing, whilst providing much needed resources for the Municipality to improve the current service offerings within the community.

Effective 01 September 2019, Council will be adopting a zero tolerance campaign against all consumers who are in arrears for service related charges; strict enforcement of the credit control and debt collection bylaw will culminate in the termination of services to site, and legal action being instituted for the recovery of all outstanding arrears.
