Town Clerk Tubmun Otieno said the extension was a special Ramadhan offer.
“The deadline was supposed to be Tuesday this week, but we have extended the offer to August 22,” he said.
He said this was meant to respect residents, who are observing the holy month of Ramadhan.
Mr Otieno also announced the council was expecting to receive an extra Sh1.8 billion from the Kenya Power Company for the facilities put up in the town.
“The payment from Kenya Power Company will now be paid by the Treasury instead of the company,” he said.
The town clerk said the Treasury has accepted to release the money soon.
He warned that after the expiry of the deadline, the council would use legal mandate to auction property and recover the rates.
