To all Members of Betty’s Bay Ratepayers Association, Other Residents and Plot holders / Aan alle lede van die Bettysbaai Belastingbetalers-vereniging, Ander inwoners en eienaars.
This is a follow-up to our letter of November 2015, when we informed you that we were going ahead to instruct Millennium Management (MM) to do a Macro Safety assessment of Betty’s Bay, in light of the overwhelming mandate received from property owners at a public meeting on Safety and Security.
Once again we would like to thank all property owners who made a financial contribution to enable us to solicit a survey of this magnitude, which also included aerial reconnaissance.
As Chairman I gave feedback on the proposal received for the service from MM, at the BBRA AGM, held in December 2015. Although a quorum was obtained, many of the members who attended the Safety and Security meeting were not present. The members present felt that the monthly cost of the entire project would be too high to sustain. A member residing permanently in Stellenbosch proposed that the possibility of forming a Special Rates Area (SRA) should be investigated in order to fund such a project. He reported that they have established such an area where he lives, which is very effective.
