Radio and television fee: New collection agency, Serafe AG instead of Billag AG

Since 01.01.2019 the company Serafe AG is responsible for the collection of the radio and television fees, which entails the following changes: 

  • Private households pay CHF 365.00 per year resp. CHF 1.00 per day (as before CHF 450.00 per year).
  • All households in Switzerland are liable to pay the fee, whether there is a device or not.
  • The collective household pays the fee for everyone. Therefore all members of the household are listed on the invoice. They are jointly liable for the fee.
  • The obligation to register is not applicable. Serafe AG receives the household data from the Municipal registration office.

Procedure in case of wrong invoice address:

Anyone who identifies errors in the addressing of the invoice should immediately report this to the Serafe (www.serafe.ch), which then forwards the information to the Municipal registration office.

Living at Vulkanplatz – First Juwo tenants move in

,

Due to the extraordinary interest all 22 apartments at Vulkanplatz are already rented.

Last week, the first young adults in education moved into the wooden modules. Life is starting on the FOGO-site!

Further information can be found under vulkanplatz.juwo.ch or www.fogo.ch.

Living at Vulkanplatz:
From sketch to reality

Living at Vulkanplatz is taking its final form and next week the wooden modules will be delivered and set up. The modules will be trucked, stacked and connected to each other within a few days – it works so fast and soon there will be over 130 new places to live in Zurich.

To ensure that the delivery and construction works go on undisturbed and on schedule, we ask you to keep your curiosity in the fence and not to participate in the event.

So that you still do not miss anything, we will update you in the days after with new photos – maybe even with the first interior shots.

Further information are available under  vulkanplatz.juwo.ch or www.fogo.ch.

New project:
Living at Vulkanplatz, Zurich-Altstetten

On a part of the Vulkanplatz in Zurich-Altstetten – directly at the station Altstetten north – a new housing development grows up. FOGO – vivid home. There are 33 flats built in wooden modules, of which 22 are rented to Juwo tenants and 11 to refugees. Juwo rents its 102 rooms in shared accommodations for 3 or  5 persons. The accommodations are available from December 2018.

The aim is to promote the community and the exchange – a village square atmosphere should arise. The future tenants are offered the opportunity to participate, to initiate ideas and to realize them.

More information can be found on the Juwo website or at www.fogo.ch.
