Lopende Bus loods in Cloetesville 

‘n Wonderlike inisiatief om veiligheid in Cloetesville te verbeter het Maandag (6 November 2017) afgeskop. Na ‘n versoek van Burgemeester Gesie van Deventer aan die Provinsiale Minister van Gemeenskapsveiligheid, Dan Plato, om met die Cloetesville gemeenskap te vergader het verskeie samesprekings en die Lopende Bus - projek uit die interaksies voort gevloei. Burgemeester van Deventer, Wyksraadslid Elsabe Vermeulen, lede van die Burgemeesterskomitee en Minister Plato het kinders van die gemeenskap Maandag vergesel na hul onderskeie skole in die Cloetesville area, as deel van die loods van die projek.

Transport Month Oct 2017

 

October is Transport Month. It is part of a campaign by the National Department of Transport and Public Works to raise awareness about the importance of transport in our economy and to encourage awareness about safe, affordable, accessible and reliable transport system for everyone.

Our roads and transport system is always an important topic due to the heavy congestion and limited parking available across our municipal area on a daily basis. Various factors contribute to the transportation challenges we face including the university and the large numbers of tourists we welcome daily.

As Mayor, I have tackled the transport issue since I came into office in 2016. For the past year, we have been in constant contact with the Provincial Department of Transport and Public Works to discuss solutions. This has resulted in a public meeting as well continued discussions between myself and Minister Donald Grant. The challenges we face with transport in our area is unique due to our heritage and environmental assets. Therefore it requires out of the box thinking not only from the side of government but also from our residents.

As a Municipality we are also making changes wherever possible to ease congestion.

 

Van 11-17 September 2017 is Nasionale Herwinningsweek. As Munisipaliteit gee ons baie aandag aan herwinning en het ons verskeie programme regoor ons munisipale omgewing wat aandag hieraan gee. Herwinning is van kardinale belang omdat Munisipale stortingsterreine regoor die land besig is om vinnig vol te word. Dit is baie moeilik en duur om nuwe geskikte persele te kry wat as stortingsterreine gebruik kan word en die omgewingsimpak daarvan is baie negatief.

As deel van ons herwinningsprogramme maak die Munisipaliteit deurskynende sakke aan inwoners beskikbaar waarin hulle herwinbare materiaal kan weggooi. Dit word dan gesorteer en gebaal by ons mini-herwinningsfasiliteit en daarna vervoer na groot herwinningsentrums. Stellenbosch Munisipaliteit is ook besig om skole by die herwinning te betrek. Die plan is om al ons skole deel te maak van ons herwinningsprogram teen Desember 2017. Die herwinning van huishoudelike afval is op hierdie stadium net beperk tot die Stellenbosch woongebiede, maar almal word aangemoedig om in te skakel by die projek. Ons werk egter daaraan om areas soos Franschhoek, Pniel en Klapmuts by herwinningsprogramme te betrek. In Klapmuts is die Munisipaliteit reeds sedert Mei 2016 besig met die “Swop Shop’’–projek, waar inwoners hul sakke vol herwinbare materiaal bring en ruil vir bruikbare huishoudelike benodighede en/of klere. Die sukses van die Klapmuts “Swop Shop” het gelei dat hierdie konsep sedert Maart 2017 ook die gemeenskappe van Kayamandi en Enkanini dien op ‘n weeklikse basis.
