Dear Mr Speaker

NOTICE OF MOTION IN TERMS OF RULE OF ORDER 13

This council noting that:

  • Flamingo Court in Umbilo used to be a council-owned building
  • eThekwini sold the flats in the building to residents
  • Individual metering per unit was not installed for water
  • The body corporate has collapsed, and water debt has crippled the building
  • eThekwini Water has previously applied to courts to cut water from the building completely

Resolves that the Executive Committee investigates and reports back on:

1. eThekwini Municipality must acknowledge that it was negligent in not installing individual metering before transferring the flats to low income owners;
2. A moratorium must be placed on disconnecting the building’s water supply;
3. Individual water meters must be installed urgently;
4. The water debt for the entire building must be written off from the date that the individual meters are installed.
