The signboard states this is an Expanded Public Works Project — waste management and cemeteries. Unfortunately, it resembles more of a disaster area totally overgrown with weeds, and it has become an unofficial dumping (waste management?) area for building rubble and general rubbish.

HOPEFULLY, in next week’s issue of the Greytown Gazette, Umvoti residents will be given a report back on matters discussed at the very expensive (to ratepayers) three-day strategic workshop held for Umvoti councillors and officials last week at the four-star luxury Coastlands Umhlanga.

But just in case there is no report back, here’s hoping some of the following topics, so important to Umvoti residents, were discussed and solutions suggested.

• The vast unemployment percentage throughout the district.

• The farce of the Craigieburn pipeline and the equal farce of the Umzinyathi interdict.

• Greytown residents have been on water restrictions for three years. It has been months and months since Umvoti and Umzinyathi Municipality officials have bothered to discuss, explain what the water situation is now and will be in the future.

• The total lack of public toilets in Greytown, Kranskop and other villages in Umvoti.

• Residents have not had municipal orange rubbish bags delivered since last August, with no explanations, as residents have to buy black bags which are supposed to be illegal.

• The appalling state of Greytown roads, and have a look at the road edges in Voortrekker and Durban, among the many. And Cooper Street — see photo on page three.

• The illegible street signs throughout and the illegal use of names for Pine Street and others, have not been gazetted.

• The “who cares” series in the Greytown Gazette — residents highlighting their problems as no action is taken.
