On the matter of the Annual Budget, Cllr Olyn indicated with concern that, “receiving a clean audit is no longer enough for the District Municipality but strategic plans to change the focus and also improve the financial position of the municipality is what we are focusing on. The lack of income sources is a major obstacle to growth and development”

“The District Municipality simply does not have sufficient funding to fund all areas that need to be funded. Having taken all these factors into consideration, we have; we have resorted to source alternative revenue sources and in so doing we have appointed a consulting firm on a risk based agreement, internally we have also established an Alternative Sources of Revenue Committee’, he said.

Cllr Olyn also tabled the Special Revised Budget which was necessary because funds were received from Treasury which was not budgeted and included in the adjustment budget in January 2017 as the funds were only received during March 2017.

The Budgets and Integrated Development Plan is an expression of the aspirations of our people. On its own it cannot achieve the desired outcomes. It requires the discipline and commitment of people who are resolute in making sure that institutional efforts are achieved.
