I am sick and tired of paying rates and taxes and nothing seems to happen. The roads are full of potholes, garbage is not collected, the streets are littered with rubbish, etc. etc. All our money just seems to disappear into a big hole.

Municipal collapse
I stay in Arconpark a surburb where millions of litres of water flows wasted due to water leaks. Continuos sewerage collapses. We have tried and pleaded and even went ao far as to supply materials. But nothing ever gets done we are just billed and we pay everymonth. The Emfuleni municipality has collapsed. Yet another ANC gravy train. The government is stealing our hard earned money. Areas should be manged according to your Finance ministry guidelines. I want the stealing of my money to stop.

Cost of living
The rise in the general cost of living is absolutely shocking. Sure, Covid-19 has a lot to do with that, but the racketeering going on in local, provincial and central goverment had a massive influence on it. Authorities must now first sort out all these ellegal actions, then get rid of all the employees that are only steeling money and who are not capable of running the organisations.

It is somewhat disgraceful that Municipalities continue granting themselves salary increases whilst South Africans are suffering economically. Jobs have been lost, incomes have dwindled but Municipalities ignore these realities. Their salaries must be frozen for at least two years togetehr with a freeze on rates increases.

I'm concerned that municipalities are going unchecked. Money is stollen and service is not delivered. Once we can trust the process of accountability then we can again support the municipality.

As a business owner in the hospitality, we are very far from recovery.

We had absolutely no assistance in the form of a payment holiday or deduction on our business rates throughout lockdown until today.

This proves to be our biggest stumbling block thus far in sustaing a cash flow and keeping our doors open.

We urge you to please consider this.

Municipal rates should not be based on the price of houses at market value as estate agents push prices up to get fat commission the whole system is wrong ... most elderly people cannot afford to live in their homes and the government
Does not build retirement accommodation

Your people are suffering, and the tax base is getting less and less. These past 2 years have had an enormous impact in the daily cost of living in ordinary peoples lives. I think it's time government came to the party on this or their tax base is going to continue to bleed out.

It is really alarming, especially for us pensioners who already struggle to make ends meet, when there are unexpected and inflated increases in municipal rates and electricity. In these difficult economic times it is really unacceptable to implement these new tariffs and charges. I strongly object.

Cost of living
It is becoming increasingly difficult for ordinary South Africans to make ends meet. Most people’s income has decreased, yet the cost of living is increasing at a staggering rate. Increasing property rates will take bread off the table for young families and retired citizens. It is hard to accept an increase in cost for no return, especially in municipalities where there is no service delivery.

Tired of being ripped off by this greedy excuse for a government

Increases should never be guaranteed. Non performance does not deserve increases. Municipality over staffed and then hire contractors to do the work.
