Bapela, Joburg mayor meet over billing
Johannesburg - Deputy Performance Monitoring and Evaluation Minister
Obed Bapela will meet with Johannesburg mayor Parks Tau on Monday to
discuss the city's ongoing billing saga.
"The meeting aims to identify solutions that will
enable the deputy minister's office to adequately address the reported
challenges in a bid to find a long-term solution," government
communications said on Sunday.
The meeting was prompted by the influx of complaints to the presidential hotline.
In November the city said it would seek to fix
incorrect bills, improve the quality of meter readings and update
customer information, which had been plaguing residents for years.
"The deputy minister hopes that the meeting will enable
his office to adequately address the reported challenges and hopefully
find a long-term and lasting solution."
The meeting, to be held in Braamfontein, would also be
attended by members of the mayoral committee responsible for the billing
