Chaos at city civic centres

2014-04-30 00:00

LONG queues exacerbated by a lack of official stamps were the order of the day at civic centres and municipal offices around the city as residents rushed to lodge last-minute objections to their property valuations.

“I asked these officials where was their ‘batho pele or people first’ courtesy. The one guy was just telling the complainants to go the the municipal manager, making no effort to help,” the official said. He added that there was a totally different attitude a the Truro Library — the other spot that objection forms could be handed in. Staff there also had no stamp, but found a way to give people acknowledgement that they had handed in objections. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
