Chiredzi
Town Council (CTC) has warned residents who have not yet fully paid for the
stands they bought that they risk having the land repossessed if they do not
pay out what they owe.
Debtors
have been advised to clear their arrears by September 30 or risk getting their
stands repossessed as council moves to get the $5 million owed to it before
inflation further gets the better of that money.
In
a notice published recently, council challenged people who purchased land but
failed to pay in full to clear off their balances in 30 days.
“To
all those with outstanding amounts on land sales including service charges for
low density, Makondo (all phases), industrial and commercial stands including
new central business district area, be advised that council is demanding the
amount in full. Failure to comply, council will have no other option than to
repossess. All payments must be made at Tshovani on or before 30 September
2019,” reads part of the notice.
Council
is owed $11 262 177 by residents; $4 959 236 being owed by stands beneficiaries
while unpaid services and other charges are worthy $6 302 941.
Chiredzi
Town Council chairperson Gibson Hwende said authorities were working for a
better town with improved service delivery standards.
“Our
idea as council is to upgrade the level of service delivery in Chiredzi to a
point where every resident becomes motivated to pay their rates on time. People
must therefore pay off what they owe so that we can use the money to improve
our town,” said Hwende.
Council
is currently servicing the new medium density residential area of Melbourne
Park and has just commissioned a project connecting Makondo suburb to the piped
water system.
A
water reticulation project being undertaken in Magwaza high density suburb is
expected to be completed anytime soon.
