At CIBRA’s recent AGM, Alderman Ian Neilson explained the problem of covering fixed costs for infrastructure when lower consumption of water and electricity reduces revenue. Answering the comparison with Johannesburg’s rates relief to residents with limited finance, Alderman Neilson pointed out that Cape Town does not impose a property value limit on applications for relief. Regarding future water supplies, the City will spend R1billion on a desalination plant intended to deliver 100 megalitres per day, and will also exploit the West coast and Cape Flats aquifers. The issue of this affecting water supply to the Philippi farmers was not mentioned. 
Our Ward Councillor, Brandon Golding mentioned that Mayor Dan Plato's slogan was "Crime, Grime, and Houses" and all Wards would be dealing with this. Regarding the issue of the entrance fee for the concerts in De Waal Park he believed that it had ensured there was less drunken and unacceptable behaviour.
