It’s finally official!

Last week, Givat Shmuel’s City Council authorized an Arnona Discount for residents serving in the Reserves.

The discount offered will be %5, which is the maximum allowed by Israeli law, and dependent on the number of days one spends in miluim.

As reported two weeks ago, this move follows the city’s push to organize discounts for soldiers and Bnot Sherut at various locals in Givat Shmuel.

The municipality has yet to publicize the specific criteria necessary to apply for the discount, but as soon as they are made available, we’ll update our Guide on Paying Utilities.
