  • Mauvina

    Absolutely shocking!!! to say the least.

  • Percy Oliver

    Firsly.look at the amount of waed councilors you have and combined more wards.how many councilors actually warrant there salariesplus the perks cell ph allownces travelling allownaces what about medical aid ?.What about staff performance productivity needs to be jacked up,how many staff members in the mayors office 20 i hear?
    Due you consider pensiones who live in a house which they have had for 16 years plus there pensions are not wht people earn today and you hit them with 150 bucks water up elctricity, sewage ,fuel levies whats next.You guys with your fat salaries and perks should look in the mirror becuase one day you will be a pensioner,and i hope to hell it hits you when it hurts your pocket you cannot expect the middle clas and lower to fork out for your inapitude,ie the water crisess the citibus crisis and now to top it all the mayors crisis D A wake up you possibly wont be in power 2019.

  • Marius Pretorius

    It is just so disappointing to see these type of increases. The people that voted the DA into government is now let down by the same bunch! Shame on you

  • Shaun

    Would love to know why any of the above employees should receive phone allowances of R 40 800 per year, when considering that for app R 20 000,00 per year you can get an unlimited calls contract from Vodacom and other providers. The city could save in excess of R 7 700 000,00 per year alone on phone allowances.

  • Ronnie

    I visited other provincial capitol cities since January this year and I can say that Cape Town is by far the best maintained of them all. I would not say the CoCT officials are not doing their job, but 12% salary increase in a year is extreme.

  • Brad

    increases way above inflation and what work has councillors have done until now except voting in favour of the party / city and against the citizens who vote them into power. Poor service delivery, no expenditures in the areas where we pay most taxes, no water, no garden, and yet you want to increase property value… Is there something wrong with these people?

  • Heinie Heydenrych

    All salary increases should be frozen this year to assist with shortfall slapped on home owners.

  • jochen demnitz

    The economy is down.Some of us are getting small increases,some not.all salaries above R25 000 should be frozen and lower salaries get a 4 % increase.especially upper managerial staff because of their poor performance should not get an increase.this and other unnecessary spending should be scrapped,like new furniture.Until the corruption leaks in central government are plugged and we get a better allocation for province.

  • Jackie Nothnagel

    Get a lot of our money and don’t do there jobs
