The property rates should be set at the value that the city is prepared to pay for the said property NOW.
MAKE THE PROPERTY RATES REALISTICALLY ALLIGNED TO THE REAL MARKET VALUE OF EACH PROPERTY.

Are you serious, how much more theft must we the Souht African people endure. I STILL 13 months later, await a renew of my 2018 rates increase with no response for 13 months.
GO TO KIMBERLEY AND REPOSES THE STOLEN MONIES FORM THE FAT CATS to pay for the rates.

• If your account is under investigation or a query is lodged on it, you should continue paying for the service rendered on your account.

HOW WHEN WE HAVE NO LIGHTS ON, SO WHAT AM I PAYING AND ADDITIONAL 54% FOR?
I HAVE CONTINUED TO PAY FOR 13 MONTHS WITH NO RESPONSE FROM ANYONE.

I get that the price of things need to go up yearly. But we are getting to a point where we cnt afford the essentials. we are trying to stay afloat. I think we need to know what all these increases go to, since services do not improve. personally i am really struggling with the price of electricity. its really expensive and we even have more load shedding.
