2008-12-12: City customer service centres to close on 27 December 2008
MUNICIPAL account holders are advised that the City's Customer Service Centres will be closed on 27 December 2008.
According to Revenue & Customer Relations Department spokesperson Stanley Maphologela, the decision to close the Customer Service Centre was taken because this day falls on a long weekend.
"We do not anticipate many people coming into our Centres on this day as it falls directly after the public holidays. We will however be open for business as usual over the rest of December and January. Operating hours for the Customer services are 07h30 to 15h30 on weekdays and from 09h00 to 11h00 on Saturdays. The only exception will be on 24 and 31 December 2008 when all Centres will close at 12h00.
"We would like to remind our customers that they can make use of EasyPay outlets, such as Pick 'n Pay; Shoprite; Checkers; Woolworths; major banks and the SA Post Office to pay their accounts. These pay-points extend nationally so even while people are out of town on holiday, they can continue to pay their municipal account for Joburg." he says.
