B&B owners threaten closure as Operation Pitbull’ business tariffs eat profits

2011-10-05 00:00

BREAD-and-breakfasts owners in the city have threatened to close their businesses following exorbitant rates levied on their water and electricity accounts by the Msunduzi Municipality.

“My rates bill has gone from R10 000 a month to R17 500 a month and that’s without the increase in water and electricity tariffs. With my B&B already struggling from the recession these new tariffs are crippling and the final straw in trying to keep my establishment viable and a float,” said Henderson.
