WAF chases arrears

PREVIOUS tenants of government quarters in the Northern Division who owe water bills have been reminded to pay their dues to the Water Authority of Fiji immediately.

While the amounts owed are yet to be disclosed, the authority is working closely with the Commissioner Northern's office to track down the tenants.

WAF spokesman Navinesh Kumar said all arrears for government quarters in the North had been referred to the Commissioner Northern's office.

"The office will allocate it to the respective tenants to clear their dues," he said.

"The arrears accumulated to these quarters had been submitted for follow-ups as the Commissioner Northern's office has all the records of the occupants and their respective ministries accordingly.

"The Commissioner Northern's office is in the process of writing to these respective ministries and tenants responsible for the recovery of any outstanding bills.

"These arrears mostly accumulated when tenants vacated the quarters without notifying WAF thus resulting in outstanding bills. However, the current tenants are paying for their bills from date of occupancy."

Acting Commissioner Northern Alipate Bolalevu said tenants would have to pay.

"Even if they are retired, we will look for them so they can pay their bills," he said.
