Chairperson, I hereby move without notice:
That the Council-
1) notes the outcry by residents of the city of Cape Town who live in flats that the City of Cape Town charged them more for water and refuse removal in the 2009-10 financial year than what the rich people pay who live in big, expensive houses;
2) further notes that the residents took the City to court on the basis that the City's tariffs were unfair and discriminatory but lost the case on a technical point; and
(3) challenges the City to take the public and in particular the poor into its confidence and to reveal the detail of the extent to which the tariffs differed between flats and single residential properties during the 2009-10 financial year and the basis thereof.
