KUCHING, Oct 30: The Kuching South City Council (MBKS) reminded ratepayers living within its area of jurisdiction that the assessment bills for first and second half 2020, have been issued either through the Post Office or hand dispatch by its staff.

According to MBKS, a copy of the bill will also be issued upon request for those who have not received or have misplaced their assessment bill, and request can be made at MBKS One-Stop Service Counter (ground floor) at MBKS headquarters in Jalan Padungan, or the Urban Transformation Centre (UTC), Level 1, Jalan Bukit Mata, here.

“The due date for payment of the first half 2020 is on 31 Oct, 2020, and second half 2020 is on 30 Nov, 2020. Payment after the due date will be subjected to a surcharge at one per cent per-month or part thereof. On no account will consideration be given to waive the surcharge on the ground of non-receipt of the assessment bills,” it said in a press statement, today.
