As a retired individual, there is no funds to pay more for electricity. Also with my children having kids in school there is just no extra money to cover a high electricity rate

It is hard enough to live with the economic state of South Africa, especially for retired people and those sho have lost their jobs. Raising the rates on all of the concerns listed will only mean that people cnnot afford the rates and will stop paying because they simply cannot. Rather help people to keep up with their rates by not increasing them.

How can there be increases in a pandemic with 45% unemployment!

All tariff increases
Increases are not justified - paying residents do not receive a proper service as it is. Numerous water interuptions for one because of poor, or complete lack of, maintenance. Mogale City Local Municipality is rendering a poor service on all levels. Obtaining an account refund on sold properties is taking 29 months - and counting.

We are throwing money into a pit - salary increases should be the last thing on the agenda... looking for savings, look at retrenchment and ways of increasing productivity. The rates payers do not receive any additional benefit for the additional monies paid. We simply don't have the money for this gravy train.

Property rates are exhobitantly high which is questionable because I have no idea what they use it for as they do not maintain the property itself it is left for me as owner to do so. On top of that one is paying off a bank bond inclusive of property insurances well with a benefit what not. The property tax should not be increased we are struggling as it is, food has increased, water is expensive which is a human right as per our constitution. The street lights where we reside aren’t serviced but we pay for that electricity monthly on levies, in this breezing dark winter nights we do not have street lights yet everything is being increased. And the rates we pay monthly are being looted and paid into ghost accounts and yet we suffer on the ground, without anyone being accountable for such misuse of funds. Municipalities must reconsider because we are already pulling hard with little that we have.
With that said I say No to increases of levies and electricity

Due to poor service delivery all round, I fail to understand the tarrif increase. It is clear that no matter how high the tarrif increase, there will never be enough money for the municipality never mind the goverment. The more funds collected, the more funds "lost" going into the coffers of the goverment. The electricity tarrif has been increased significantly with ZERO improvement of service delivery and load shedding continues........ Krugersdorp water is frequently shut down due to burst water pipes or reservoir pumps that fail. Pavements and side walks are rarely maintained and grass is rarely mowed.

Show us proper management of funds and proper service delivery, then communities will pay extra with a smile, no questions asked!

Why pay more for basic services if the Municipality cannot provide it. There is a constant electricity outage in Carletonville due to poorly maintained infrastructure. 80% of all street lights do not work.(no money for globes) Refuse is dumped all over the town as the dumping site is not safe and over flowing with illegal occupants. No plans in place to increase the dumping area. I had the water tested previously, the amount of E coli contained in the water is far above the allowed amount in drinking water. Tar roads are in a massive state of decay. Potholes fixed by residents.
All this is due to incompetant and thieving "leaders" appointed to run a minicipality. Residents fixes up most of the issues themselves through groups and sponserships why then do we need to pay again and more, to enrich individuals that has no interest in conducting the work they are appointed to do. Municipalities can request increase once they can provide constant basic services and have rectified/retrieved money lost due to corruption and incompetance

I oppose any increase in rates and services. People are struggling everywhere to make ends meet, and you guys continue to waste and squander! Root out wastful expenditure and you will have an extra 75% in working funds. Then you can REDUCE the fees!!!

Sewage
Sanitation (sewage) charges are higher than water charges ie we pay less for a liter of water than what the council charges us for a liter sewage discharged.
These charges must be brought in line.
