Incentives Extension Banner

To relieve consumers of their arrears burden and to maximize revenue collection, the MMC for Finance and Revenue, Cllr. Hassan Mako extended the validity period of the incentive scheme to 30 December 2022. This comes after the incentives program proved to be worthwhile as consumers from all walks of life came in large numbers for account settlements and arrangements.  

With the new cut-off date in place, residential and business account holders remain eligible for consideration. Incentives on cash settlements and arrangements will continue to be offered at 50% for residential consumers and 30% for business consumers.

Consumers with arrears of more than 90 days (exclusive of traffic fines) qualify for the incentive scheme. Residents and businesses whose accounts qualify for the scheme are encouraged to visit any of the following offices and complete the forms in person:

  • Vereeniging Rates and Taxes Office at corner Beaconsfield Avenue and Leslie Street.
  • Vanderbijlpark Customer Care Office at 74 President Kruger Street.
  • Vanderbijlpark Debt Collection Office at the ELM main building, corner Klasie Havenga Street and Frikkie Meyer Boulevard.

All of the above-mentioned offices can be visited weekdays from 08h00 until 15h30. Consumers are advised to bring a copy of the Identity Document (ID) to complete the application.

Additionally, the municipality encourages residents who cannot afford to pay for services to register on the indigent database to assist with the cash flow. Those who have registered are reminded that such registration requires annual renewal for the municipality to ascertain whether financial situations have improved.

On behalf of the Emfuleni Local Municipality, Cllr. Hassan Mako is calling upon all eligible account holders and indigents to take advantage of the discounts to end arrears.

On Friday, 24th June 2022, the Executive Mayor of Emfuleni Local Municipality (ELM), Cllr. Sipho Radebe hosted a successful Infrastructure, Planning and Development (IPD) Indaba at the Mayor's Parlour in Vanderbijlpark. Held under the theme "CHANGING THE NARATIVE”, the Indaba was organized by the IPD department under the stewardship of MMC Ezrol Nzima.

The purpose of the Indaba was to unlock working partnership between government and local businesses from Electricity, Water, Waste Management, ICT and Construction sectors.

In his opening remarks, the Executive Mayor thanked MMC Nzima and his staff for organizing a successful engagement for building and securing both public and private infrastructure in Emfuleni. Addressing the delegates from local business sectors, Mayor Radebe made mention of the District Development Module (DDM), which talks to streamlining service delivery plans across all spheres of government.MMC IPD

“The Vaal needs an improved coordinated planning which must be inclusive and transparent. Planning should be done with the intent to unleash an economic program aimed at forging working partnerships between government and business for the benefit of our residents," Mayor Radebe said.

The Executive Mayor further stated the importance of the ANC led Coalition Government’s success in Emfuleni concerning service delivery infrastructure.

“We can only measure the success of the current administration by how much it meets the aspirations of the people of Emfuleni, and how the municipality plans to secure existing infrastructure by guarding against vandalism going forward, said the Executive Mayor. 

Mayor Sipho Radebe condemned all acts of vandalism on our already ailing public infrastructure and further said that the security of infrastructure must now form part of the municipality’s everyday planning.EM Kenny Table

“It is high time that the municipality explores all available technologies to secure our infrastructure, especially with the use of electronic monitoring technologies that can detect vandalism of our infrastructure,” Mayor added.   

In his closing remarks, Radebe recognized and thanked all delegates who attended the Indaba and made it a resounding success it was. A special vote of thanks was extended to the guest speaker of the day, Mr. Kenny Kunene, a renowned political activist and business mogul.  The Mayor further thanked the Sedibeng District Municipality (SDM) MMC for Transport and Infrastructure Cllr. Nkosinathi Ndwandwe for exceptional work done directing the program.ndwandwe
