Kouga wraps up successful season

COMPLIMENTS have been pouring in for Kouga Municipality in the wake of a successful festive season.

While the overall visitor tally is still to be finalised, the demand for municipal services was greater than last year, suggesting an increase in the amount of people who spent the summer holiday in Kouga, Executive Mayor Horatio Hendricks said.

“The municipal service departments were out in full force to meet the bigger demand and did a great job. We are very grateful to each and every one of them for helping to ensure a pleasant holiday experience for all,” he said.

The cleanliness of Kouga’s towns and beaches, in particular, has been widely praised on social media by visitors and holiday-makers alike.

“Our cleansing teams worked till late and were often up at the crack of dawn. It is great to know that their efforts were seen and appreciated by the wider public,” Hendricks said.

Careful monitoring and management of the municipal reservoirs helped to prevent water shortages despite the thousands of holiday-makers and soaring temperatures increasing the demand for this precious resource.

“I must also thank all our residents for using water sparingly. While we had good rain in September last year, the drought has not yet broken. Saving water needs to become a normal part of our everyday lives,” he said.

Early indications are that the local hospitality industry also did a booming trade as holiday-makers set out to explore all that Kouga has to offer.
