Bulkan pointed out that if the councils work to find their own source of funding, then they would not have to deal with the strings that are attached to the financial support they get from outside sources.On the issue of the stipend to the councillors, he noted that “there is nothing in the local government legislation that prevents the municipal councils from paying stipends or salaries to their councillors, once they have the means.”The Minister urged the councillors to examine the means of financial resources within their municipalities and determine how they can leverage these to address this issue.Addressing the concern of disunity within one of the councils,Nike Shoes Mens Clearance Sale, he noted that “there is a time for politics,” but that this is “not when we find ourselves in our councils; when we have to deliver to our people.
