ESSENTIAL SERVICE: FINANCE

ESSENTIAL SERVICE: FINANCE (as on 22 JUNE 2020)

The George Municipality thanks ratepayers who have been able and willing for paying their accounts despite the many Covid-19 challenges.

Printed municipal accounts for May 2020 have been issued but may take some time to reach ratepayers as the postal service only has a third of its staff serving under Level 3.
We have been advised by the George Post Office that mail will start moving on Monday 29 June. We request that ratepayers that do not receive their accounts before the account due date of 15 June, to pay their monthly average amount.

Online accounts via email have not been affected by lockdown. If you want to receive your account via email, please mail a request to accounts@george.gov.za

George Municipality Mobile App subscribers can still access new statement amounts by the 27th of each month. Download the App from your mobile Playstore – when you register the first time,
use your mobile phone number as the username and password (you can change the password once you are in).

Please note the Finance Hall in the George Municipality Main Building remains closed on Covid-19 Lockdown Level 3 and ratepayers are requested to use one of the below-mentioned methods to make payment.

 

Accounts can be paid via electronic transfer (EFT – see details below), via pay@ mobile applications (see details below) and at Pick n Pay, Checkers, Shoprite, USave and SPAR.
Please take your most recent available account statement with you so that the shop can access the bar code that connects your payment to your GRG account number.

 

Meter readings
While meter readings have resumed, customers are encouraged to submit their meter readings electronically via email by the 5th of each month to meterreadings@george.gov.za or george2@ikaparetic.co.za or george@ikaparetic.co.za

Please include your GRG account number and date of reading.

If for some reason, meter readings could not have been performed and you have not made an electronic meter reading submission, estimations will be used to calculate related rates.
