The Stellenbosch Municipality today formally launched its ground-breaking Service Warrior Project with the Induction of new 11 Service Warriors.
The project is aimed at ensuring that service standards in all areas improve so that water leaks, transgressions, service defects, etc. are reported pro-actively to a central municipal desk from where remedial action can be taken swiftly.
The Warriors have all successfully completed training in basic plumbing at the Bergzicht Training Centre.
This pilot project will be rolled out in Kayamandi, Klapmuts, Groendal/Langrug and Dwarsrivier and is geared towards minimising the turnaround time for service delivery challenges. The project will be expanded to include all areas of the Greater Stellenbosch.
Employing residents from the area as Service Warriors not only contributes to the improvement of service standards in the municipality but also contributes to local job creation.
The project was launched as a joint initiative of Mayor Van Deventer and Deputy Mayor Jindela. The Mayor wished the team well and promised to join them in the field.
Mayor van Deventer said: “We are committed to keep working towards enhancing our service delivery standards until it is a best practice model in South Africa. This is yet another step towards that goal.”
Mayor van Deventer and members of the Mayco, together with pupils from several schools in the Stellenbosch area planted trees earlier today, 12 April 2018, at the Stellenbosch Golf Club.
This forms part of the annual Mayoral Golf day, where funds are raised for the Mayoral Fund. The Fund is geared towards assisting community members in need.
Today, 11 April 2018, representatives of several municipalities from across South Africa met in Stellenbosch to discuss innovation in waste management. The group is on a study tour in Stellenbosch to visit our state of the art waste treatment facilities and learn about best practices in waste management.
This visit forms part of a Western Cape study tour organised by the Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).
Stellenbosch Municipality is putting its community first again by handing out its second batch of title deeds to residents in three months! This batch of title deeds closely follows the 117 title deeds handed over in January 2018. This is part of the municipality’s commitment to providing dignified living for all its residents.
