Brakwater-vergadering afgestel

26 September 2019 | Local News

Yolanda Nel Inwoners van Brakwater wat daarna uitgesien het om hul misnoë teenoor die stadsraad uit te spreek
rakende verhoogde tariewe, sal nóg langer moet wag nadat ’n vergadering wat Saterdag sou
plaasvind, vir eers uitgestel is.
Een van die inwoners wat graag haar sê sou wou sê, beskik oor sonpanele en ’n persoonlike boorgat.
“Ons plot sit tussen ander en dus word ons toegangspad nooit deur die munisipaliteit geskraap nie.
Ons reël en betaal daarvoor uit ons eie sak,” het sy gesê. Tog is hulle munisipale rekening die
afgelope jaar N$1 000 per maand meer as in die verlede.
Sy het bygevoeg dat water- en kragrekeninge direk aan NamWater en NamPower betaal word.
Volgens Andre Brits, wat ook op Brakwater woon, verwag die munisipaliteit dat inwoners vir dienste
betaal wat hulle nie ontvang nie – dit terwyl daar in die afgelope 25 jaar glo geen opgradering van
infrastuktuur in die area was nie.
Hy het verduidelik dat die stadsraad Brakwater nou oor dieselfde kam skeer as ontwikkelings soos
Finkenstein. “Brakwater is nie ’n landgoed ontwikkeling nie, dit is ’n kleinhoewe,” het hy gesê en
byvoeg dat dit weens die uitleg van die plotte, dit nooit dieselfde pad- of rioolinfrastruktuur sal kan
hê as byvoorbeeld Elisheim nie.
Die ongelukkigheid kom ná die stadsraad sedert August verlede jaar munisipale tariewe met tot 5
000% verhoog het. Brakwater is al 26 jaar deel van Windhoek se munisipale gebied, maar het nog
altyd net sowat 20% van die normale tariewe en belasting betaal omdat geen dienste en
infrastruktuuropgraderings in die gebied gelewer is nie.
Geen ander datum vir die vergadering is aan die inwoners deurgegee nie.
