At the Council meeting held today, the municipality praised itself on its performance for the financial year 2016/17 through more rigorous reporting mechanisms implemented which have ensured that the municipality achieved 91% of its set targets.

This highlights the positive strides taken by both the political and administrative leadership in ensuring that a culture of improved service delivery and reporting thereof is promoted.
