    CHIVHU – Chikomba Rural District Council (RDC) has proposed a $3,9 million budget for the 2019 financial year and this is a 28% increase from $3.1m for 2017.
    The council said that rates and tariffs will remain unchanged.
    Presenting the budget statement during full council meeting on Friday, Chikomba RDC finance committee chairperson Chrispen Kadenge said the 2019 budget has increased because the council is anticipating more revenue from debt collection and usual rate payments.
    “The council will reintroduce strict measures to ensure that residents and other stakeholders pay their dues and clear their debts. I am impressed by the budget performance for the current year which surpassed 2017 in terms of performance,” he said.
    The budget performance for 2018 stands at 60%, a slight increase from the 57 % of the previous year.
    Chikomba RDC recently engaged Mangwana and Partners legal practitioners to recover its debts owed by residents.
    Kadenge said the budget is programme-based with 30-70 ratio for admin and service delivery expenditure respectively. This is a requirement of the Ministry of Local Government, Public Works and National Housing.
    About $1.9 million of the proposed budget, which is 30% of the total revenue, was directed towards road rehabilitation and maintenance.
