The pricing keeps going up, and up and up, and the service stays horrible ...

the cost if living is getting so high, that one of these days no will be able to even pay for anything anymore ....

We are already so burdened with continuous rising cost and as PENSIONERS there just do not seem to be any acceptable reprieve.
Surely as PENSIONERS we have contributed to he well-being of ALL tiers of Government, ensuring that the coffers are kept at substantial levels of affordability and continuing to do so!!
Service levels are horribly DOWN and it seems as though this is only done in certain areas to an acceptable levels!!
Winter sees drains overflowing and blocked - not cleaned during dry times
Streets area swept only in certain areas and even them not on a consistent basis; even so this action is not properly managed even though there are supervisors who appoints the teams but these teams are not properly managed - one week later you see them sweeping exactly the same areas/streets - unacceptable
Streetlights are out and reported with no's issued but are not attended to
Law enforcement are requested to render a service regarding loud music, occupying of parks with large crowds and crowds paying ball games in these parks or open areas - absolute minimal actions; cattle feeding in residential areas - stench, health and flies in abundance

An unaffordably large increase in electricity, water, refuse removal and property rates has been tabled for approval by this ANC council, particularly for the above inflation increase in Counciller's salaries, which they do not desrve, in my orpinion, because they are not delivering on their promises. They are living affluent lifestyles at the cost of the ratepayers of the City.

No person that can not perform his/her work properly gets an increase but rather gets dismissed. Why should these municipalities be treated any different? No delivery and no clear audits = No More Money. These are bottomless pits of waste.

Previous comment was not correct. I do support Freeze any increase on government or municipality spending.

South Africans are being pushed beyond their limits. We need to stabilize the country and cut down on corruption. If you focused on corruption there will be sufficient money for all infrastructure repairs

Where does all the money end up which municipalities raise from us? Instead of using it to the benefit of the people residing there, much of it disappears into thin air. Or rather in somebody's personal purse?

We cannot afford any increases during covid - our livelihoods have been affected and we're all struggling to hold on without going into terrible debt. Our salaries are not being increased and the council workers and suppliers salaries should be frozen too - we're all in this together.

Streets are dirty & unkempt; potholes not fixed soonest; in spite of numerous requests, no vehicular access to my front door unless one parks in the street and holding up traffic; and the main issue - water disaster not being attended to timeously

I have already fallen behind on monthly municipal payments. I, and many others cannot afford increases in rates.

Everything keeps going up, but salaries stay the same. Big guys at the top dont feel it. Jobs are cut because of everything going up which means even more job losses

I have to pay for a security company because our police force are inadequate to provide me with protection. I have to buy water filters because the municipality water is not as refined as it should be. I have to pay a haulage contractor to take my garden refuse to Berlin - as the municipality has closed our local garden refuse sites. I spray the weeds that are growing in the pavement outside of my house because the municipality do not clear the weeds.

My rates and taxes are supposed to pay for the above services but because the municipality are corrupt I have to pay twice for services that they should be providing. Why?
