2008-07-15 00:00

With several businesses planning to close down in Mooi River following the municipality’s refusal to lower the rates randage on commercial properties, residents have taken their fight to the KZN provincial government, calling on Premier Sibusiso Ndebele to intervene.

A hotel in the town which has been paying R1 900 per month will be faced with a monthly rates bill of about R6 600. The hotel does not get enough paying guests to be able to cover this rates bill as well as overhead costs, and is planning to close. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
