Joburg most productive municipality - survey
Johannesburg - Johannesburg has the most productive municipality in South Africa, the city said on Wednesday.
Spokesperson Nthatisi Modingoane said this emerged in the Municipal Productivity Index survey conducted by Municipal IQ.
"The results reflect the gains the city is making in the provision of human and strategic infrastructure to facilitate development in its endeavours to build a resilient, liveable, sustainable urban environment underpinned by infrastructure supportive of a low-carbon economy."
The index analysed data to measure how productive the average South African municipality could be, he said.
It took into account the city's responses with regard to poverty, access to a minimum level of services, economic infrastructure used by residents, the quality of financial governance and staff vacancy rates.
"When all these factors are taken into consideration Johannesburg tops all the country's municipalities," said Modingoane.
