The City of Bulawayo would like to advise stakeholders and residents that it is currently carrying out water disconnections with immediate effect on all residential and commercial properties whose accounts are in arrears.
Disconnections for the weekend of 14 and 15 September 2019 will focus on Wards 1 (City Centre), Ward 5 comprising of Hillside, Fourwinds, Famona, Hillcrest, Morningside and the surrounding areas and Ward 6 covering Bellevue, Newton West, Barham Green, Montrose, Southwold and surrounding areas.
Residents are therefore encouraged to bring their accounts up to date in order to avoid this inconvenience. Payments may be made at all District Offices and at the Revenue Hall or through the mobile platforms or bank transfers.
Council further advises that only the Revenue Hall will be open on Saturday, 14 September 2019 and Sunday, 15th September 2019 from 08:00 hours to 15:00 hours to facilitate for payment of accounts.
Residents are encouraged to avoid being inconvenienced by these necessary recovery measures by availing themselves to the following:
- Approach any of Councils' Revenue Offices and request to enter into a payment arrangement that will protect you against any of the recovery measures being taken.
- Ideally, a payment arrangement acceptable to Council involves an initial payment of 10% (minimum) of the total outstanding debt, followed thereafter by making monthly payments of current bill in full plus 10% (minimum) of the outstanding debt until the debt is paid in full.
- Honouring the arrangement made will have the effect of continuously protecting you against any of the recovery measures that Council takes against debtors.
- For any further clarification residents can visit any of the Revenue Offices.
You may visit any of the District Offices and the Revenue Hall for payment arrangements or call the Credit Controller on (02922) 60734 or (02922) 60736 or (02922) 63465 or (02922) 63490.
