There is an explosion of service delivery blitz following the Clean and Safe City campaign as launched by Executive Mayor in 2011 and re-launched recently on the 13th January 2017, with the objective to ensuring safety and cleanliness for all residents of Rustenburg, as it is carried out every day in all Wards of the Municipality.
The programme, inter alia, includes cleaning of manholes, parks, cemeteries, catch pits, storm water channels, patching of potholes, grass cutting, education and awareness on illegal dumping and littering, war on water leaks, inspection in loco to bus and taxi ranks, cemeteries, brothels and suspicious taverns.
“We remain resolute and focused on realising our vision of becoming world class city. We cannot realise that if we do not get the basics right. We have resolved to get back to the basics by ensuring that our city is clean, safe and secure for all residents, so that they can enjoy high quality of life, remarked Executive Mayor, Cllr Mpho Khunou, during the bltiz.
Inadequate planning and inaccurate data capturing and analysis relating to water, sanitation, waste management and related infrastructure will be a thing of the past after the Rustenburg Local Municipality launched the new service delivery digital system, namely; Infrastructure Management Solutions (IMQS), on the 30th January 207, here at the Rustenburg Civic Centre.
“This modern-day digital system will go a long indeed to assist the municipality to discharge its mandate of service delivery effectively and efficiently. We will now through this system be able to budget, establish, maintain, upgrade and operate physical infrastructure assets. We will be able to optimize energy resources and plan proactively for existing and future energy demands, whilst we plan and manage infrastructure projects with excellence by gaining control over expenditure and monitoring costs,” said Acting-Municipal Manager, Mr Gordon Molokwane, during the launch ceremony.
“The introduction of this modern digital system, IMQS, comes as a big relief to us as we are now in a better position to develop plans to ensure efficient, affordable, economical and sustainable provision of water and sanitation services, as well as waste and related infrastructure, thus ensuring quality and timeous service delivery to our residents, as we together continue to move Rustenburg forward,” remarked Executive Mayor, Cllr Mpho Khunou, during the launch.
