A sac­ri­fice by mu­nic­i­pal of­fi­cials?

Grocott's Mail - - OPINION AND ADVICE -

Dear fel­low Gra­ham­sto­ni­ans/makhanda-oni­ans, I re­fer to the Face­book dis­cus­sion last week­end re­gard­ing a pos­si­ble rates and taxes di­ver­sion. I have given the mat­ter deeper thought based on the com­ments posted by those who have the well-be­ing of our town at heart.

I have an idea: I chal­lenge the lead­er­ship at the Makana Mu­nic­i­pal­ity, if they re­ally care for this town and its peo­ple, to do­nate the value of their rates and taxes to Makana Re­vive for in­fra­struc­ture main­te­nance and, in ad­di­tion, to will­ingly have their prop­er­ties ex­pro­pri­ated for the home­less.

I look for­ward to a re­ply from the Makana Mu­nic­i­pal­ity lead­er­ship.
