City takes the budget to the people for input <p>​The City’s public participation meetings around the draft budget will take place from 4 to 11 April 2017 across Cape Town.</p><p>‘We are making a concerted effort to connect with our ratepayers and residents as it is incredibly important that they scrutinise the draft budget and provide us with their comments for consideration so that they can be part of our efforts to make this city even greater. We can only improve our proposals if residents provide us with additional insights. This public participation process enhances accountability by bringing government closer to the people,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Finance, Councillor Johan van der Merwe.</p><p>Once the public participation process is completed and public input is considered, it is only then taken to Council for debate and adoption in May 2017. <br> <br>The dates and times for the scheduled community meetings are as follows:</p><p>North:</p><ul><li><div style="text-align:left;">Tuesday 4 April 2017 at 19:00: Robinvale Hall, Starling Street, Atlantis (subcouncils 1, 3 and 7)</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">Thursday 6 April 2017 at 19:00: Kraaifontein Civic Centre, Brighton Road, Kraaifontein (subcouncils 2, 3, 7 excluding Klipheuwel, 15 and 16)</div></li></ul><p>East:</p><ul><li><div style="text-align:left;">Wednesday 5 April 2017 at 19:00: Sidney Kuhn Civic Centre, Macassar (subcouncils 21, 22 and 8)</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">Tuesday 11 April 2017 at 19:00: Khayelitsha Training Centre Auditorium (subcouncils 9, 10 and 24)</div></li></ul><p>Central:</p><ul><li><div style="text-align:left;">Tuesday 4 April 2017 at 19:00: Gugulethu Indoor Sport Centre, corner of NY1 and NY2, Gugulethu (subcouncils 5, 11, 14 and 17)</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">Thursday 6 April 2017 at 19:00: Parow Civic Centre, Tallent Street, Parow (subcouncils 4, 5 and 6)</div></li></ul><p>South:</p><ul><li><div style="text-align:left;">Wednesday 5 April 2017 at 19:00: Rocklands Civic Centre, Mitchells Plain (subcouncils 12, 13 and 23)</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">Thursday 11 April 2017 at 19:00: Alphen Hall, Constantia (subcouncils 18, 19 and 20)</div></li></ul><p>Residents can find more information on the draft budget by visiting <a href=""></a></p><p><br><strong>End</strong><br></p>2017-03-30T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#2d9d26f8-fc9c-42a9-8fb2-4688d58c4173;L0|#02d9d26f8-fc9c-42a9-8fb2-4688d58c4173|Public participation;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#191b1b12-4267-46d3-a6e7-02be3df25e7a;L0|#0191b1b12-4267-46d3-a6e7-02be3df25e7a|budget;GP0|#796a2f21-c55a-40da-9aab-0d965b382e9a;L0|#0796a2f21-c55a-40da-9aab-0d965b382e9a|draft budget1
