One College was closed as it was operating illegally, some received fines for noncompliance with municipal bylaws, and others given time to rectify mistakes and be fully compliant with Higher Education regulations.

Clean and Safe City operations in the city.

The Rustenburg Local Municipality has so far recorded significant successes since the inception of the Safe and Clean City Campaign.
The municipality in partnership with the Hawks (Investigative Unit of the South African Police Service) had on Monday embarked on a special operation focused on uprooting crime in the city involving scrap yards operating illegally and suspected of dealing in stolen copper cables and materials allegedly stolen from Eskom infrastructure.
The operation uncovered other illegal activities and practises inconsistent with the law, illegal trading in different business fields, including stores selling expired goods and food products.
The municipality encourages the community to participate in the campaign by reporting criminal activities with the South African Police Service.

Rustenburg Local Municipality Lifts Water Restrictions

The Rustenburg Local Municipality hereby informs residents and businesses that, following a meeting with Rand Water, as the Municipality’s water service provider has lifted previously communicated water restrictions on the 2 December 2018.

We however continue to urge community members to save water, not water gardens and fill swimming pools. The Barnardsvlei Reservoir water levels will be constantly monitored and any changes that may compromise sustainability of the reservoir will result in communication of water restrictions.
