10 Apr 2018, Cape Town: The City of Cape Town needs R10-billion to provide services and has therefore proposed the following Rates and Tariff Increases in order to collect the funds.
The increases will kick in on 1 July, pending the public participation process.
According to Cape Town ETC, these extreme high increases for Water and Sanitation is due to the drought, which has caused lower consumption of water and therefore lower revenue for the City.
The City also requires extra funding to foot the bill for projects such as aquifer drilling, desalination and water reclamation.
But this budget will not be implemented until the public participation process is complete – and that’s where you come in.
Cape Town residents have until the 4th of May 2018 at 16h30 to lodge their complaints or comment on the increases.
