All administrative offices, libraries, selected rates halls and pay-points will be closed from 1pm on December 22 and will re-open on January 2.
However, emergency and essential services such as refuse collection, electricity and water services will not be affected by the recess.
“Time off during the Christmas holidays is the best opportunity to afford employees to spend times with their families, especially those who wish to travel to their respective hometowns during this season,” said Ekurhuleni spokesperson Themba Gadebe.
“Residents are also reminded to pay their municipal accounts on time and utilise facilities such as the www.e-siyakhokha.co.za online platform.
Residents are advised to utilise the following numbers in cases of emergencies:
• Life-threatening emergency line: 011 458 0911 or 10177 – 112 from mobile phones.
• Municipal services call centre: 0860 543 000.
The municipality wishes all its residents a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
