Mayor tackles illegal dumping issues

Q: Dear Sir, I am very concerned what the gym-park in Crawford street. I am passing there every day and it is heartbreaking to see how many of the rides are out of order. Who are going to fix it, when it is the public that damages it. On a later stage an entry fee has to be charged to cover the repairs. Don’t the public know that it cost money to keep this park in check? It would not be a bad idea to do that, then people will appreciate what is made available. Then the empty beer bottles that are left under the trees, goodness why letting people stop there to drink. What don’t the security do their duty, or are they only for the gym-park?

A: We have taken it up with the security and also looking at maintaining the equipment.

Q: Then another matter: In Hastie street, are dumping done also in Bird Street, next to Nil Desperandum. It is disgusting to see how much respect people have towards their environment. It would or might be beneficial to have somebody just passing that areas to see who is doing that, it can’t be just one person who does it all at once, but a lot of people who think they can get away with it.

A: Too much of illegal dumping takes place in this town. We are putting in place a law enforcement unit. We will be more harsh on these crimes.

Q: Cllr afzul can you please give us answers the taxi rank that is been extended is very good for the town and for the people using it but sir at the moment those people that are ranking illegally they are trashing the sports ground they cut big holes in the fence and using grounds to wash taxis and its dirty there can you help?

A: Asked and answered last week. (We are moving as fast as we can on the holding area, it was a decision only taken in December. It will be finished in the next couple weeks, weather permitting.)

Q: Mayor. Thank you for your hard work. I want to find out how to go about getting a prepaid mete installed and also if I have one what charges i will be liable for with the municipality like refuse collection?

A: Yes you will still be liable for all other charges. Please apply at the front desk of Municipal rates hall.
