DA urges Tshwane residents to give input to the pro-service delivery budget

City of Tshwane Mayor Randall Williams will today table the draft budget and Integrated Development Plan (IDP) for the 2022/2023 financial year and period.

The DA worked very closely with our coalition partners over the past month to compile this draft, which aims to be a pro-service delivery budget in support of the recent Tshwane Ya Tima debt collection drive to stabilize the city’s finances and leave a solid foundation for further budgets to build on.

We urge residents to give their input to the draft budget and IDP as soon as they open for public participation. The process will be opened after the Mayor tables the budget, residents can give their input by visiting the City of Tshwane’s website or by contacting their local councillor.

Mayor Williams will also table the unqualified audit opinion by the Auditor-General (AG) for the period 2021/2022 to be released for public participation.

The AG raised some areas of concern that the DA Mayoral Committee Member for Finance, Cllr Peter Sutton, has already started addressing. The DA welcomes this report and we are committed to ensuring an accountable and clean government.

We further call on the community of Tshwane to join us in building a better Tshwane by making their voices heard on the budget, IDP and audit alike.
