2011 budget negotiations

The business community here has asked the council not to increase the budget from its 2010 provision as many of them were still trying to find their feet.

The business people met with city fathers and other stakeholders at a business community expectations meeting held at the council chambers on Thursday.

“The business community asked council not to increase the budget from the $5.7

million dollars adopted last year. Some of them even requested a lowered budget as they were still finding their feet following the economic downturn. We will look into the request as a council, it is not possible to cut down on the budget as the council would fail to deliver services,” said Mayor Farai Nyandoro.

A realistic and affordable budget would help business people to run viable projects and also lure new investors to the town.
