Ratepayers: 30 days to appeal

2014-08-29 00:00

RATEPAYERS are reminded that those who have had their objections rejected have only 30 days to apply for reasons for the decision.

If they choose not to apply for the reasons but still want to appeal, this must be done within 30 days as well.

Ratepayers are warned to look at the date of the letter that notifies them of the outcome of their objections and to count 30 days from then.

Those who have received the reasons for their objections being rejected can appeal. However, they must do so within 21 days of receiving the reasons.

Even though the appeal board has not yet been constituted, the dates of the correspondence will be adhered to when the matters are heard.

Formal appeal forms should be completed and sent in with supporting documents. Appeal forms can be obtained from the valuation section in the A.S. Chetty Building, 333 Church Street. Alternatively, appellants can arrange to have them e-mailed by phoning 033 392 2088, the number given in the objection letter. — Witness Reporter.
