Ekurhuleni to Consult Communities and Business on IDP/Budget
Proposed new tariffs, credit control measures and budget proposals on capital projects are expected to dominate discussions at the City’s Draft Integrated Development and Planning (IDP) and Budget public consultative meetings.
The City will hold public IDP and Budget consultative meetings from 02 April to 11 April 2019 with residents and other stakeholders. They will have an opportunity to comment on the developmental programme of the City as contained in the IDP for the next five years and the budget for the next three years. The consultative meetings will be held in the 20 customer care areas starting at 18:00 on scheduled days to discuss the draft IDP and Budget with communities.
Integrated development planning is a process through which municipalities prepare a strategic development plan which extends over a five-year period. This then guides and informs all planning, budgeting, management and decision-making processes in the municipality.
The Draft IDP and Draft Budget documents can be viewed electronically at www.ekurhuleni.gov.za, or at public libraries, pay points and customer care centres during office hours. Comments can be filled in and dropped into Budget Tips boxes at the mentioned offices or e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Public enquiries can also be made by contacting the IDP office at 011 999 6763, 011 999 0591 and 011 999 5921. See list for details on the meetings.
