The council adopted a revised budget for the 2018/2019 financial year at its first meeting for the year this week, allocating more funds towards safety and security, keeping communities clean and for the maintenance of parks and recreational amenities.
One of the major priorities Mayor Dan Plato highlighted was an additional R115million towards clean-up operations, including in informal settlements.
The ANC, rejected the revised budget, saying it perpetuated the social inequalities in the city.
“We will call on the minister of co-operative governance, Dr Zweli Mkhize, to investigate the political interference by the DA in the running of the city. Residents on the Cape Flats continue to suffer because service delivery is so poor there. The DA-run council is failing to deliver sanitation and basic services to areas of the poor,” ANC provincial secretary, Faiez Jacobs said.
