Durban – eThekwini Mayor James Nxumalo is expected to outline how the city plans on using its R41.6 billion budget at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre on Monday morning.

The city has invited the business sector to give its input on the 2016/2017 budget, which is made up of an operating budget of R34.9 billion and a capital budget of R6.7 billion, the city said.

Nxumalo is expected talk about project plans, investments that the city is making, capital expenditure and private investments.
