Problem property cleared

With the intervention and assistance of ward 17 councillor Sharlaine Oerson, the Department of Environmental Health and the Department of Solid Waste, a problematic property at 84 Park Street in Spandau was cleaned up two weeks ago.

The property, described by local residents as a “real rubbish dump”, was filled with piles of rubbish, had blocked toilets and sewer pipes as well as no running water.

In what Oerson describes as “an eight-month battle”, the councillor alongside the departments cleared close to 30 bags of rubble and rubbish from the property.

“Last year residents contacted me to complain about the rats and flies in the area, as well as the blocked drain in the street because of the accumulated dirt on the property,” explains Oerson. “We then followed procedure and the person residing in the house was fined R5000 by Law Enforcement.”

Oerson shares she then went to speak to the resident as a means of establishing some plan to assist him with the clearing up of the property. “That’s when the Department of Environmental Health, the Department of Solid Waste and myself decided to assist with the cleaning of the property,” she says.

Oerson shares that the owner of the property is in actual fact deceased and that his son is currently residing in the house. “We discovered that the son will build and clean the properties of others and then bring the rubble from those properties to dump on his own,” says Oerson.

Furthermore, she says the community is pleased with the clearing of the property and that the resident has promised to keep it clean from hereon forward.
