7 years, 9 months ago - October 21, 2013
The financial situation in the local community looks worrying for the year 2014. The five cities are expected late 2014 show a budget deficit of Rs 408 M.

The reason for these deficits , it is argued in these municipalities, happens to be the PRB . "The government had promised to reimburse us for all that we are forced to spend, but this has not been the case ," said Mayor Beau-Bassin/Rose-Hill
Andre Toussaint , mayor of sister cities with the support recommended in the PRB wage compensation , the city was forced to disburse between Rs 40 and Rs 41 M M. " The government had promised to reimburse us the all of this money, but we were reimbursed to the tune of Rs 17 M. This is not even half , " he laments .
The mayor argues that despite the money that the city hopes to raise in 2014 , " the financial forecasts for the end of 2014 announced a budget deficit of Rs 75 M. " Regarding the budget of this city , it is estimated at Rs 390 million .
This is the same trend also the side of the mayor of Port - Louis, where the budget deficit for 2014 looks more consistent . The Department of Finance announced a deficit of Rs 154 million for a budget of Rs 810 M. A framework for the department said that with the new provisions of the New Local Government Act , the region straws now returned to the charge of Directors of Port Louis.
"What is it we need to find additional Rs 25 million ," is it out . To this we add the fact recommended in the PRB salary compensation . A hard pill to swallow as the responsibility of the mayor to disburse the sum of Rs 80 M. In this case, we are informed that "the government has already informed the managers of the municipality of Port Louis that this amount they will not be refunded . "
2014 does not look better for the town of Quatre -Bornes . With a budget of Rs 398 million , financial projections show a budget deficit of Rs 78 M. Again, the specter of wage compensation PRB seems to weigh heavily on the banks of the Town Hall . "We had to find Rs 47 million for the new salaries PRB " advance Mayor Dayamantee Meetoo . "We obviously want to continue our development , but it looks much easier ," she says .
In Curepipe , the tone is already given . Counsel for the opposition Ananda Rajoo is categorical . "The precarious financial situation will without a doubt affect the quality of our services ," he says . Same story on the side of the municipality of Vacoas / Phoenix . Mayor Yetty Menon says that, according to financial projections, "the budget deficit will be Rs 101 million, while the budget will be Rs 392 M. " Again , the mayor explained that " wage compensation PRB weighs heavy in balance with about Rs 30 M. "
