Apart from meeting legislative requirements, this policy also emanates from the objectives determined in Council’s anti-corruption policy.
The levying of a rate on a property is an exclusive right of the Municipality which will be exercised:
- Optimally and comprehensively within the Municipality; and
- With consideration of the total revenue source of the Municipality.
The rating of properties will be done independently, justly, equitably and without prejudice and this principle will also be applied with the determination of criteria for exemptions, reductions and rebates as provided for in section 15 of the Act.
