Capital budget spend of only 43% queried

Umdoni Municipality, Scottburgh

During the  recent Umdoni Finance Portfolio Committee meeting,  it emerged that only 43 % of the allocated capital budget was used up in the last nine months.

How will it be humanely possible to expend the balance (57 %) in just three months that is left of the financial year. Blaming the procurement delays at Supply Chain Management (SCM)  department has become  the chief defence.

All the noise by Councillors and their questions intended in the pursuit of oversight is absolutely meaningless when officials don’t do their work and don’t care about consequences because there will be none.

“Will there now be a rush in signing of cheques and doing vanity projects et-al  to make up for the unused budget.

“Is this the type of planning that our officials and Councillors learn at the  expensive Strategic Planning Workshops held every year,” remarked a concerned ratepayer.
