CCID chief executive Tasso Evangelinos said: “The CCID draft budget was advertised to our stakeholders for public comment in March 2019, approved by the stakeholders of the CCID in May 2019 and went through the city council, and implemented in July 2019.
“It was advertised by the City in the press. We received no feedback or objections to the draft budget from our stakeholders or from the City.”
The CCID’s 2018/19 annual budget is R60 624 218. The City was asked in March to support a 12.5% increase, which would include an annual inflationary increase.
The bulk of the additional budget would be spent on the critical areas of safety and security, social development and urban management.
