2017-06-08 06:00

FOUR public meetings will be held this June in preparation of the compilation of the new General Valuation Roll for Kouga.

Executive Mayor Elza van Lingen asks residents to take note that the venues for two of the meetings - at St Francis and Gamtoos Valley - have changed.

The first meeting will take place at the Newton Hall in Jeffreys Bay on June 12. The meeting will focus on the Jeffreys Bay area, including, Aston Bay, Marina Martinique, Pellsrus, Mandela Bay, Tokyo Sexwale, Ocean View and Paradise Beach.

On June 13, the second meeting will take place at the Hankey Learners Licence Test Centre at the main municipal office. The spotlight will be on Thornhill, Loerie, Hankey, Patensie, Gamtoos, Crossways, farms in the Hankey and Patensie areas, as well as Uitenhage farms that fall under Kouga’s jurisdiction.

The third meeting will take place at the Humansdorp Country Club on June 14. Areas under discussion will be Humansdorp town and surrounds, including Kruisfontein, KwaNomzamo, Vergenoeg, Vaaldam and farms in the Humansdorp area.

The last meeting will take place at St Francis Links on June 15. The focus areas will be St Francis Bay, St Francis Links, Kromme River, Sea Vista, Cape St Francis and Oyster Bay.

The meetings will start at 18:30 at the respective venues.

“The new General Valuation Roll will determine how much property owners will be expected to pay for rates and taxes from the 2018/2019 financial year. We would, therefore, like to encourage all residents to attend the meetings as the outcomes of the process will affect everyone,” says Van Lingen.

According to Van Lingen, the draft Roll will be tabled to Council for adoption before the end of January 2018, after which property owners will have an opportunity to object should they disagree with the new valuation of their property.
