Pensioners to enjoy subsidised services

Posted: 10 Jun 2015

oldsAs part of its Social Responsibility Programmes towards its community, the Lüderitz Town Council has adopted an indigence policy, which allows pensioners as well as people living with disabilities to qualify for municipal support tariffs.
The Policy, which will apply strictly to home owners of the said groups, entails exemption:

  • from interest charges on arrears;
  • from water basic charges;
  • of 40% of normal household basic refuse and sewerage charges.

 

In addition to being a home owner, beneficiaries must be registered with the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare and must be receiving the monthly social grants. Thereafter, beneficiaries must register with the Lüderitz Town Council and will be expected to renew their affiliations annually, between the months of January and May.
