Among the City’s planned allocations are electricity infrastructure; housing construction and property acquisition; water and roads infrastructure; the replacement of redundant vehicles, and for urban and transport planning. Meanwhile, according to council management committee chairperson Fillemon Hambuda, the city has proposed minimum increases for some tariffs that will be submitted for approval to relevant authorities, including the electricity tariffs that will be amended once the Electricity Control Board pronounces itself.
