Mayor upbeat about Cape Town's future

2012-01-18 21:49
Cape Town - The City of Cape Town received an unqualified audit for the 2010/2011 financial year, Mayor Patricia de Lille said on Wednesday.

"The city performed well in the 2010/2011 financial year... despite the many challenges, the city has managed its resources in a way that will ensure its continued success going forward," she said.

The city received its eighth unqualified audit from Auditor General Terence Nombembe this week.

Nombembe declared the Western Cape the top province with 96% of its audit reports being financially unqualified with no findings.

City spokesperson Priya Reddy said improvements had been made in sectors like urban services, transport, and safety.

She said urban infrastructure saw R1.712bn in repairs and maintenance.

In the township of Khayelitsha, a public transport interchange was completed at a cost of R30m. Not far away, a parking terminal for buses and minibus taxis had been completed in Mitchells Plain.

In the central business district, the main terminal for the MyCiTi bus service was launched, with a dedicated bus lane to Table View and four feeder services around the city.

Reddy said a focus on safety had resulted in many more arrests for drunken driving. Arrests for drug-related crimes had increased by 46%.
