Umzimkhulu Local Municipality viewpoint

2016-11-18 06:00


Public participation

As our democracy evolves it is imperative that an enabling space for the community to register their concerns is available. We once again call on our communities to make use of the ward committees and municipal izimbizo to register their views. We therefore thank the community for being part of the municipal growth as they successfully participated in the municipal programmes.

SMME facility

In order to dignify our economy driver - SMMEs - the municipality havs started to build an SMME facility where the community of Umzimkhulu can go in times of need. With this facility the municipality indicates its attitude about SMMEs.

New offices for Department of Social Development

It is pleasing to witness progress on the new building built by Department of Social Development, behind municipal council chambers. This has been a long time in coming and proves the commitment of government to bring service to the people.

Employee wellness

Municipal employees are taking part in sports events every week. This programme is gradually improving team spirit among employees. The municipality’s aim is not to have them winning all games, but to have them participating in all games.

Until we meet again.
