Council is owed more than $925 million by Government, business and residents a situation which has seen council failing to provide basic services.
Town Clerk Engineer Hosiah Chisango said there was need for council to urgently recover the money so council can improve on service delivery.
Eng Chisango was speaking at the Rapid Results Initiative Mid- Term Review at Town House.
“We also need to recover money owed by huge debtors, and this requires a business unusual approach.”
Council owes various organisations $503 million.
The city now requires about RTG$18 million monthly for water treatment chemicals.
Eng Chisango said the city was expecting progress on its new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP).
“We started with billing and all other related functions are being worked on. We expect all our operations to be integrated onto the new system.”
