– 23rd to 30th March 2009

2009 Council Budget:

The draft budget for council for 2009 is to go for public
participation. I urge you to get involved-it’s YOUR money being spent
and you must have a say on the issues affecting you.

The council has 2 parts to the budget-namely an Operating Budget
& a Capital budget.
The proposed Operating budget is R 5.2 billion with major expenditure
being on:

Employee/staff costs-30%
Electricity & water purchases 20%
General Expenses 25%
Repairs & Maintenance 8.5%
Depreciation 8%

Funding is obtained from service charges such as water, sanitation,
refuse etc (39%), rates (13%) grants & subsidies from
government (25%)
Proposed rates increases-10%
Water, sanitation & refuse-10%
Electricity 20%
The DA is not happy about rates increase and feel 8% would be more
We are concerned that council so quickly hikes up everything but the
service delivery and lack of austerity measures in these tough times
are non existent.
If council cuts back on the lavish expenditure on the parties, trips,
nice but not necessaries we could easlity justify a lower rates
The Capital budget is 2.362 billion.
Revenue from operations-14%
Government grants-55%
External loans-33%
What is promising:
Meer geld allokeer aan herstel van water, paaie, electrsitiet ens
Raak betrokke- datums sal in die pers verskyn oor die tye en plekke van
openbare vergaderings waar u u mening kan gee oor die planne.
2. Steun vir DA Styg: 

Menings pyle vir die opkomende verkiesing gee die DA stygende
ondersteuning hierdie verkiesing.
Daar is ‘n groot moontlikheid dat die DA die Kaap provinsie, Gauteng
Noord Kaap en KwaZulu Natal kan wen.
Die DA sukses van regering in Kaapstad-dink wat die sukses sal wees in
hierdie provinsies met DA regering.

Until next week
Fondest regards to you all
