Why make these changes now?
The Municipal Government Act (MGA), proclaimed in December 2017, established standards regarding good governance, financial accountability, administration and service delivery while also providing greater authority, flexibility and discretion. The Municipal Affairs division has tracked all feedback received on the MGA and associated regulation since proclamation.
