Warm greetings to Umz people
The Executive Committee members led by our Hon. Mayor Cllr Mpabanga attended the IDP/Budget retreat which was held in Durban recently. All what the Executive committee intended to do was to verify the inputs of IDP/Budget steering committee and the council whether their inputs had been incorporated in the Budget. This is the preparatory sessions for the Budget outreach programmes which will be rolled out in April for the community members to input in the Budget.
The council is preparing for the visit of the office of the Auditor General. The office intends to start the audit of three quarters which is nine months period. As Umzimkhulu municipality who is among the seven municipalities that received a clean audit, we are on the spot light. Therefore the council is doing all its best to ensure that all the documents are ready for AG’s perusal.
People are wondering why the Eskom poles have not been removed from our newly constructed roads. We wish to inform the public that Eskom poles would be removed after having paid the amount that Eskom billed us for the removal of the poles. The amount is R1.2 million which is not an easy thing like any person would think. However, the municipality has secured the funding and we are processing the payments to Eskom. Once the payment is done, Eskom will have to appoint a contractor to remove the poles. This is the status of these poles which are obstructing the way and they are making our roads not to be trafficable. Nobody has issued an instruction that the roads should be used; we are prohibiting our motorists in using the roads. They should understand that if they drive on these roads they are doing it on their own peril.
