KOUGA Municipality is gearing up to be a job-driver over the next three years.

Newly-elected Executive Mayor, Horatio Hendricks, said the creation of jobs would be a priority throughout his term.

“The municipality cannot be a job-giver but must be a job-driver.

“We will do this by creating a stable economic environment, maintaining sound financial practices, ensuring political stability and fostering a culture of good governance, with an over-arching adherence to the rule of law.

“This is what nurtures the environment needed for external investment.”

He said the municipality approved building plans totalling almost R1-billion over the past financial year.

“Projects over the next three years will include a five-star hotel at the St Francis Links, a private hospital in Jeffreys Bay, a 250-unit holiday resort, three envisioned schools, a new head office for the Humansdorp Co-op, and the Ocean View 1500 and Pellsrus 220 housing projects. This is how we become job creators.”

The Mayor said land for commonages and emerging farmers would also be a high priority and one of his personal objectives.

Kouga wil werkverskaffing dryf

KOUGA-munisipaliteit is oorgehaal om werkskepping te dryf.

Horatio Hendricks, Kouga se nuwe burgemeester, het onderneem om werkskepping een van sy prioriteite te maak tydens sy termyn.

“Die munisipaliteit kan egter nie ‘n werkverskaffer wees, maar moet die skepping van werk dryf.

“Ons sal dit doen deur ‘n stabiele eko-nomiese klimaat te skep, politieke stabi-liteit te verseker, en goeie finansiële bestuur en regeringspraktyke te handhaaf. Só kan die munisipaliteit ‘n klimaat skep wat beleggers trek. Dít is hoe werkskepping gedryf word.”

Volgens die burgemeester, sal grond vir meentplase en ontluikende boere ook ‘n fokuspunt wees.

Die munisipaliteit het oor die afgelope boekjaar amper R1-biljoen se bouplanne goedgekeur.

“Projekte oor die volgende drie jaar sluit in die bou van ‘n vyfster-hotel by die St Francis Links, ‘n 250-eenheid vakansie-oord, drie skoolgeboue, ‘n nuwe hoofkantoor vir die Humansdorp Koöperasie, ‘n privaat hospitaal op Jeffreysbaai, en die bou van 1500 Hop-huise by Ocean View en 220 Hop-huise by Pellsrus.

IKouga izakudala amathuba emisebenzi

UMASIPALA waseKouga uzilungiselela ukuba ngumququzeleli wokudala imisibenzi kule minyaka mithathu izayo.

USodolophu osandula kunyulwa uHoratio Hendricks uthe ukudalwa kwamathuba emisebenzi kuzakuhlala kuphezulu eluhlwini lwezinto kuso sonke esi sigaba.

“Umasipala akakwazi ukuba anikezele ngemisebenzi koko kufuneka abe ngumququzeleli.

“Oku sizakwenza ngokwenza imeko yoqoqosho enozinzo, sigcine iindlela zokuphatha imali ezizizo, siqinisekisa ukuzinza kwezepolitiki, sikwakhuthaza inkqubo yolawulo eyiyo, sigxile ekwenzeni izinto ngokomthetho.

“Yiloo nto edala isimo esikhuthaza utyalo-mali oluvela ngaphandle.”

Uthe umasipala uye wakhupha iziqinisekiso zeeplani zokwakha ezingaphaya kwe-R1 billion kulo nyaka-mali udluleyo.

“Amaphulo okwakha kule minyaka mithathu izayo abandakanya ihotele yohlobo lwe-five star eSt Francis Links, isibhedlele sabucala eJeffreys Bay, indawo yabatyeleli eneendawo zokuhlala ezingama-250, izikolo ezintathu ezisacetywayo, iofisi engundlunkulu yeHumansdorp Co-op, namaphulo ezindlu eziyi-1500 eOcean View nezingama-220 ePellsrus. Lolu hlobo esithi sidale ngalo amathuba emisebenzi.”

USodolophu uthe umhlaba wokugcina imfuyo yamafama asakhasayo nawo uzakubaphezulu eluhlwini kwaye iyinto azakuyijonga ngokwakhe.
