Thank you, mayoral staff

2016-07-13 06:00

A FEW months ago I reported “alien” invasive trees invading our property from the roadside.

I wrote a letter to your efficient staff in the mayoral office, Fezeka Mthembu, Madeleine Jackson and Marche Anthony.

The ladies responded forthwith as usual and forwarded the complaint to the relevant department.

These ladies are very competent and au fait with their respective responsibilities and would always update me with the progress and/or difficulties.

The matter as referred to a well mannered and able Gerald Naicke, who would timeously update me of his plan of action.

He would call whenever he was on site to ensure that I was posted on the progress of the job or what would take place that day.

All the trees were felled without the use of a “cherry picker”, nor having to drop down any electricity or telephone lines.

To the ladies at the office and Naicker and team, you have done us proud by working very efficiently and effectively.

God bless you, you have done your city proud.
