THABAZIMBI – Thabazimbi Local Municipality budget for 2014/2015 was approved by the Council at a Special Council meeting on 30 May 2014.
The draft budget was available for public comment and community input until April 30.
It is, however, important that consumers and ratepayers receive the assurance that this budget is a budget of the people and diligent oversight occurred before the final approval.
The approved budget will now be implemented on July 1 and unlock the new basket of municipal services and social benefits for our community. The Mayor set the tone of the Thabazimbi service delivery target and budget deliverables during her IDP/Budget 2014/15 presentation.
Various different comments were received and communities provided their input on the budget that was captured by the finance department and included in the final budget.
The whole process is designed to ensure that the budget represents the needs of our community and addresses the concerns of our people.
