Cape Town Stuff!

The City of Cape Town reminds residents that due to hot weather, an extended billing period, and the Level 2 water restriction tariffs, many may notice a spike in their water bills this month.

Residents are not being penalised in terms of the higher steps of the tariff, which are being applied correctly. 

In light of the recent enquiries and social media posts on the subject, the City of Cape Town would like to remind residents that increased water and sanitation tariffs have been implemented since 1 January 2016 as part of water restrictions.

For an average domestic customer, the differences in price are as follows: Continue reading

An assessment has been made of the 20 housing units razed by the petrol bombing incidents and the vandalism of more than 100 units between 25 and 27 February 2016.

The City is investigating after one of its Law Enforcement officers was arrested along with four other motorists during an operation to tackle illegal street racing. Read more below:

A City of Cape Town Law Enforcement officer is facing disciplinary and criminal charges after being arrested for reckless and negligent driving.

The officer was one of five motorists arrested on charges of reckless and negligent driving during an operation focusing on illegal street racing on Wednesday 2 March 2016. He and three others were arrested along Koeberg Road in Milnerton (which was the busiest spot for the evening) and one other was collared in Blue Downs. Officers also issued 78 fines for various other offences.

‘The operation was surprising for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I don’t think the Ghost Squad expected to catch one of their own colleagues behaving badly and breaking the law, but secondly, officers were surprised at the fact that Koeberg Road appears to be a new favourite among illegal drag-racers. The fact is we cannot tolerate such behaviour from staff who are paid to uphold the law. It is not only embarrassing to the City, but it is also a smack in the face of the public who look to our staff to set an example,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security, Alderman JP Smith.
