City of Joburg hosted an open day at the Sandton Convention Centre in a bid to resolve the billing crisis.
SANDTON - hundreds of residents braced the rainy weather to query their accounts at the City of Joburg's billing open day at the Sandton Convention Centre on Saturday.
Many residents said they remain skeptical about the department's intervention following months of unresolved inflated billing queries.
Residents brought along thick files with incorrectly billed account statements.
A resident who said he didn't mind standing in queue as long as his water account would be fixed.
"This is a very good initiative from the City. One has to ask the question, why are we here in the first place?"
While the initiative has been lauded by most residents it remains to be seen whether the municipality will put an end to the billing crises.
