According to the Kouga Municipality, the Newton Hall has been double booked so the meeting due to be held at the Newton Hall will be combined with the one at Pellsrus Hall this evening at 6pm.
In other words – there will be only one IDP and budget meeting in Jeffreys Bay.
All residents are encouraged to attend and have their say regarding the proposed 2013/14 municipal budget.
One of the primary concerns identified by residents is the proposed 13 % increase in property rates that will certainly affect the pockets of already cash strapped consumers in the Kouga.
Other concerns include the R 105 million identified by the Auditor General to creditors of the Kouga Muncipality as well as the R 28 million owed to the PE Metro for water used in Kouga.
