We get charged R860.45 Whether we use 1 kl or 100 kl.
We use on averag 15kl of water.
I think that it is unfair.
Especially in todays place where they are building all over
the place.
Why should we 2 people pay the same as a house with 8
people.
In general. We already paying too much. Why must they increase
again!!!.
We can't carry on like this, haveing an increase every 5 minutes.
Just so the council can inflate the salaries even more.

As a whole, all the increases are too high for the already over burdened rate payer especially when one considers that certain suburbs impose an extra levy on its residents. The city of Cape Town should be the only authority that can charge tariffs. Home owners associations should be prohibited from charging any so called levies if they are in an open development, such as Sunningdale and not part of an estate.

Alle munisipale tariewe is al klaar baie hoog. Die tariewe is verlede jaar verhoog.
Die meeste mense in Stilbaai is persioenarisse. En die verhogings is net te erg.

We had a rates hike last year. There is no need for salary increases at a time like this. Surely some cuts on excessive municipal spending should be looked at and adjusted. Work with what you have already. It's nonsense that the public have to cough up all the time to make ends meet when government or municipalities run out of money. Employ people who are good at their job, who take pride of their work and who maintain their equipment. You're not in the business of politics to make money, you're there to serve the public who voted you in

Money has been wasted, frauded, pocketed, etc., and we the tax payers must just keep forking out to keep those who don't give a dam about law-abiding South Africans citizens in luxury. Enough is enough. Start providing reliable, sustainable services, then consider increases. This goes for all municipal services across the board.

Simply put, these increases are unaff ordable for many. Outside of the civil service, parliament and the top ranking parliament officials as well as high ranking provincial officials, salaries for those on middle incomes and below as well as pensioners on a fixed income and those with families, are already struggling. Yet again I'm reminded of the ivory tower syndrome. No wonder there are so many defaults and late payments. Give the citizenry some relief for a change.

AS a pensioner my general annual increase is 5.5% without any additional income.
I worked for 42 years and have no desire nor the will to continue working serving the country as a civil servant.

The problem is that despite us paying the monthly account, what is the general distribution of income received by 1000's others, especially those who do not pay but expect the same service delivery as those who pay. We are already 4 adults and one child living in one house as rental and purchasing property is unaffordable the other 3 adults, not getting high paying employment or increases similar to the proposed increase.

With expected food & fuel prices to sky rocket and weather changes reducing food production, this increase is unaffordable.
