8 Principles of municipal responsibilities The constitutional mandate for municipalities is that they strive, within their financial and administrative capacity, to achieve the objectives and carry out the developmental duties, assigned to local government. The municipal council therefore takes on the following principal responsibilities: to provide democratic and accountable government without favour or prejudice to encourage the involvement of the local community to provide all members of the local community with equitable access to the municipal services that they are entitled to to plan at the local and regional level for the development and future requirements of the area to monitor the performance of the municipality by carefully evaluating budget reports and annual reports to avoid financial problems, and if necessary to identify the causes of financial problems and resolve them as they arise to provide services and facilities, and financial capacity, within the constitutional and legislative authority, that benefit ratepayers and residents, and visitors to its area. These would include, but are not limited to, general public services or facilities (such as electricity, water and sanitation services, waste and refuse removal), community services or facilities, and cultural or recreational services or facilities, while focusing on core functions as a priority to provide infrastructure for the community and for development within the area by promoting an attractive climate and locations for the development of business, commerce, industry and tourism to manage, improve and develop resources available to the council. 8

9 Co-operative government mean The Legislation fosters a greater level of co-operation across (and within) the different spheres of government, based on systems of mutual support, information sharing and communication and co-ordination of activities – each aiming to add value to the others’ responsibilities with a view to improving outcomes for all. 9
