The sod turning ceremony of Phase1 of the construction of a section of the Main Outfall Sewer took place today.

The proposed upgrade of the bulk outfall sewer pipeline in Lemoendraai, Upington is viewed as a necessity as the current infrastructure is operating beyond capacity. As a result, the system is subject to frequent localized sewage overflows and spills. If left unattended, it will have an effect on  the environmental, public health and safety of the environment.

Given the current and planned future development within the area of Upington, and the expected resultant increase in sewage output, we plan to manage the overflow and spills.

The Dawid Kruiper Municipality has therefore, seen it essential to upgrade a section of the sewer pipeline during the 2019-2020 financial year, this will be phase one (1) of the project which entails four (4) phases. This would be the departure point to eradicate the sewer spills in Upington.

The main components of phase 1 are:

-Installation of 792m stainless steel reinforced HDPE sewer pipe 900mm

 Die Dawid Kruiper munisipaliteit wil die inwoners inlig oor die nuwe waardasie proses.

Munisiaple Eiendomsbelastingwet, Wet 6 van 2004, skryf aan ‘n Munisipaliteit voor hoe daar gehandel moet word met eiendomsbelasting en alles wat daarmee saamgaan.

Volgens artikels 30 en 32 van die wet moet ‘n munisipaliteit alle eiendomme binne sy regsgebied laat waardeer en is ‘n waardasie rol vir ‘n periode van 5 jaar geldig. ‘n Munisipaliteit kan egter aansoek doen vir die verlenging van die rol. Dawid Kruiper Munisipaliteit se huidige rol het op 1 Julie 2014 in werking getree en daar is goedkeuring verkryv ir die verlenging van die rol tot 30 Junie 2020. Die beteken dat Dawid Kruiper Munisipaliteit se nuwe waardasierol op 1 Julie 2020 geïmplementeer moet word.

Artikel 33 verplig ‘n munisipaliteit om ‘n waardeerder aan te wys wat verantwoordelik sal wees vir die opstel van die waardasierol. Die Raad het die firma Makgakga Property Valuers aangestel om hierdie taak uittevoer.

Die waardeerder moet nou begin met die insameling van inligting wat benodig word om die waardasies uittevoer. Alhoewel die wet aandui dat inspeksie op ‘n eiendom nie verpligtend is nie, is dit vir die waardeerder belangrik om sekere inligting aangaande die eiendom te verky om ‘n ingeligte besluitte neem.
