MEMBERS of the Verulam Civic Association (VCA) met with eThekwini deputy mayor Fawzia Peer to facilitate proper and efficient service delivery to the community of Verulam at the Reaction Unit boardroom, Verulam recently.

Tabled for discussion were extensive civic issues and challenges such as the outstanding fire station, road carnage on the R102 and M27, high crime rate, insufficient policing, land invasions, minimal co-operation from councillors and inefficient supervision by departmental heads.

Chairperson of the VCA Vish Roopnarain said in a statement: “After much deliberation and engagement with those present the deputy mayor made it known that it is the duty and responsibility of the ward councillors to attend to, and resolve all concerns raised by the community.

“Failing which VCA should then refer these concerns to her office. Peer also emphasized that CPF’s need to work more closely with communities at ground level in order to address crime in their areas.”

Roopnarain expressed his sincere appreciation to the deputy mayor for listening to the challenges and concerns of the association and committing to assist the VCA in future.

He said he was looking forward to work closely with the councillors and deputy mayor to provide efficient service delivery to the community of Verulam.
