It’s like emailing a brick wall!

Sir, To Umvoti Municpal Heads of Departments;officialsl employees and Councillors:

By not bothering to reply to ratepayers requests and letters to the press and to you, reinforces your despicable attitude towards your employers.

Would you explain how rate payers, this month, are receiving two accounts, two accounts the same? Standard letter postage is now R3.30, times this by how many households and businesses, equates to a lot of money. Greytown Municipality employees fit the profile of every government department, national and provincial, who used to be civil servants and are now self serving servants.

EDITOR’S NOTE; The Greytown Gazette would really like to be able to publish positive good news on Umvoti Municipality and would be thrilled to receive such. However it is not only residents and ratepayer whose telephone calls and emails are ignored – it’s the press too. Transparency and the right to know are the keystones of this country’s democracy as emphasised continuously by the late President Nelson Mandela. Unfortunately Umvoti Municipality apparently has dismissed these two vital pillars so important tobuiild a foundation of trust.

. It would achieve so much more for all –the municipality and the communities if we could work together for the wellbeing and future of Umvoti through open and frank communication -here’s hoping
