“Now that you are developing your new budget for 2020, once you have completed that exercise it is extremely important that at least by January or February next year you should have a ratepayer’s forum.”

The Local Government Minister says during these forums municipal councils are to present their budgets with facts and figures to ratepayers so as to keep them updated on the council’s financial position.

Kumar says this will help ratepayers better understand any increase or decrease of rates charges.
