As Mogale City concludes the 2021/22 financial year, all consumers are reminded of tariff increases for the 2022/23 financial year commencing on 1 July 2022 which will be implemented on their July 2022 accounts.

While the municipality has, in the past two years, tried to contain costs for the consumer in response to the economic effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, price increases for the upcoming financial year could not be avoided. As a result, the special Covid-19 rebate which the municipality had put in place for two consecutive financial years has been discontinued. Furthermore, the 0% increase on property rates for the past four financial years is also no longer sustainable for the municipality thus property rates will increase by 3%.

As the municipality continuously strives to ensure its financial sustainability while also maintaining affordability for all Mogale City consumers, electricity hikes could also not be avoided. Eskom’s tariffs increase for the 2022/23 will be at 9.61%, a percentage increase that guided the municipality’s 7.47% hike. The water and sanitation tariffs have also been increased in line with Rand Water’ percentage rise.

Following extensive public participation on the budget and the tariffs, the municipality has done tried to contain tariff increases as minimal as possible for the upcoming financial year under challenging circumstances.

We also wish to thank all rate payers for paying their municipal accounts on time every month during this financial year.
