It is that time of the season once again, when the municipality needs to be financially ready to render services during the 2018/2019 financial year. At the moment, all HODs and departmental champions, with the municipal leadership, are consolidating proposed budgets submitted by municipal units. The processes to consolidate budget adjustments, as the season dictates, have also been completed.


The municipality has since embarked on serious processes to enhance IT, communications and public participation, and therefore the ICT Committee has been formed. This committee had since submitted a turnaround ICT strategy to the municipality. It is yet to meet with the municipal leadership as part of an ICT awareness campaign.


As a municipality, we would like to urge our communities to participate fruitfully in our public participation programmes in order to contribute towards our growth.

We furthermore would like to urge those who do not reside in the municipality on a daily basis, yet have an interest in the welfare of this municipality, to also engage with the municipality before advocating unfounded issues. They can reach us through our Customer Care Unit at or 071 331 4358 or 039 259 5053. Till we meet again.
