Valuations: objections reduce roll by r912 mln

2009-11-27 00:00

THE 8 800 property valuation objections received by the Msunduzi Municipality have now all been evaluated and responded to.

This was stated by municipal manager Rob Haswell at a recent full council meeting. Haswell went on to say that the objections have led to a R912 million reduction in the total value of the roll.

With the total worth of the roll amounting to R49 billion, this figure represents a relatively minor reduction of 1,8% in the overall value, he said.

Objectors who are not satisfied with the responses they receive from the municipality can still appeal via the Provincial Appeal Board, he added.
