    I feel you. Here in CT, at both my business and at home we are being squeezed more and more by the utilities, and at a rate far in excess of official inflation.

    The end result is the same. You either need to earn more, which costs someone else more, or you need to spend less, which also costs someone else. Either way, it stunts growth and fuels a recession.

    The reason you're paying more for utilities in Cape Town is because you spent less. They need to make up the shortfall. Betaal sal jy......

    Florida - Roodepoort? If so have you applied for pensioner's discount? If not check if you qualify and go to Civic center. SWAMBO applied. No answer yet.

    A glance at city budgets usually explains it. Too many "we demand", nice to have etc and too few payers.

    Didn't they make R3.6bn this year? Well done you rate payers, you're fuelling the wealth redistribution.

    Look at who is in charge of the city now...

    Then look South West. Any similarities in rate hikes?

    And before anyone mumbles about how well a certain party runs municipalities, explain to me why why the traffic light at Hendrik Potgieter and 14th Avenue has been out of order for more than a week or why major potholes are unattended for months. Also tell me why the Metro Police still are not enforcing laws around offences other than speed.

    When staying in Roodekrans I popped into rates office to ask about discount. In 10 minutes I was registered and received a years backdated credit !!
    There is no task too simple for some people to complicate !
