It is your Constitutional right to comment on the financial management and governance issues of any municipality. Every municipality has a Constitutional mandate, be it an A, B or C-Municipality. Eden District Municipality – a category C-Municipality, is guided by Sections 83 and 84 of the Local Government: Municipal Structures Act 117 of 1998 on what functions and services the municipality is required to deliver.  It is however important to note that the Municipality does not exercise all functions prescribed by the Act, because some of the functions have been entrusted to B-municipalities in the district to deliver.

All comments received, are submitted to the Municipal Public Accounting Committee for discussion and consideration. No comment will be withheld or ignored – every comment stays on record.

Closing date for comments: Thursday, 26 February 2018 (12h00)
