I must say that phoning the Municipality is always a dread of mine. But I was pleasantly surprised with the service I have received from the George Municipality. During Load shedding, I called them often to check of updates and I was always tended to with concrete information. The fire department also assisted right away when i called them to report water gashing out of a fire hydrant near me. Thank you guys for doing a great job.
