The Kouga Council meeting scheduled for today has been postponed.
The speaker of the Council, Councillor Dlomo, ordered the postponement of the meeting due to the importance of the items on the agenda and the fact that Councillors need adequate time to study the documents.
Many of the Councillors only received their agendas over the weekend, making it impossible to properly apply their minds to the items to be discussed.
Included in the documents is the proposed budget for the 2014/15 financial year, the annual report of the Kouga Municipality as well as the annual financial statements, as audited by the Auditor General.
The Council meeting is now scheduled to take place on 8 April at the Council Chambers in Jeffreys Bay.
