A task team formed will be the point of contact between the business forum and the municipality.

With a view of creating a conducive environment for local businesses to begin the journey of rebuilding Umzinto CBD, the Umdoni leadership, led by Mayor Khathi, met with the Umzinto Business Forum on Thursday, July 15.

During the engagements with this structure, the Mayor profusely sympathized with the business owners and assured them that the municipality would conduct its assessments to ascertain the extent of damages and devise possible corrective measures.

The business community appreciated this initiative by the municipality and further requested that the municipality considers giving amnesty on rates for the affected businesses, suspension on property evaluations, and a possible relief grant.

The Mayor has assured the forum that these requests have been duly recorded and will be submitted to the relevant municipal structures for deliberation and further taken to the provincial level for consideration.

“While we continue to bring back order and stability, we urge for unity towards finding progressive solutions that will assist in fast-tracking the rehabilitation of our economy.”

A task team formed will be the point of contact between the business forum and the municipality.
