Mr Mayor do your job

2018-06-13 06:02

Dear Editor,

I HAVE always been so proud of the Greytown Library. Their staff are excellent — friendly, efficient and helpful — and they also ensure that the people who use the library for the internet, copying of documents, and for studying and meeting purposes are assisted in every way possible. However, the public toilet facilities have been out of action for over two months as they are waiting for the Umvoti Municipality to fix the supply of water to the toilets.

There are sometimes over 30 people using the library facilities at one time and, for two months, these people have had to leave and use some other facility to respond to the call of nature.

I have actually seen a man and woman use the electricity box in Pine street as a toilet facility.

Not to mention the school children who use the library as a place to play while they wait for their transport home.

I had presumed that the Umvoti Municipality was possibly struggling financially and could not afford to fix this important water supply issue. Then, I read that the new mayoral vehicle was going to cost the Municipality R1,3 million!

Mr Mayor, do your job and ensure that the ratepayers and people of Greytown are given the service they deserve instead of quibbling about how much your new vehicle is going to cost.

Please ensure that the public toilets at the Library are working again soon.
