VAAL TRIANGLE - The Emfuleni Local Municipality wishes to remind the community that it is still accepting applications for the Revenue Incentive Scheme. During its Council sitting of the 31st August 2021, the municipality resolved on a scheme that is aimed at easing the financial burden on ratepayers due to tough economic times fuelled by the Covid-19 pandemic. Eligible residential ratepayers can receive a 50% debt write-off and 30% write-off for businesses. This resolution was taken in order to ensure that all Emfuleni Local Municipality (ELM) property owners whose municipal accounts are in arrears be brought back into good standing. Eligible account holders are notified that the incentive is limited to consumers with arrears of more than 90 days. The cut-off date for the incentive is August 2022.
