Many positive programmes have been rolled out in Atlantis.. Food relief: Every ward councillor availed savings from their ward allocation for food relief. Some wards had more savings than others, NGOs appointed were registered to procure food parcels and responsible for their distribution in the community. Unfortunately, these parcels are limited, and their contents are in no way enough to feed the population of every ward. All efforts are made to continue supporting households in desperate need of food relief.. Murp: Through Mayoral Urban Regeneration Programme (Murp) funding each sub-council received R1 million for projects in wards. I am pleased to announce the councillors of Ward 29 and 32 committed their portion of R500 000 each to the beautification of all entrances to Atlantis as well as the cleansing of all flats in the area.. CRU projects: The sub-council has taken note of the vast need for repairs and cleaning at the flats. Recently three contractors were appointed by the City’s Solid Waste Department to do cleaning at Dura, Heathfield and Neptune Castle flats. The scope of the contract was to clean around the flats. The report-back to the sub-council by these contractors were very valuable. I can confirm that 200 bags of waste per day was collected and a total of 1 400 bags of waste was removed for the seven day period. A total of four 10-ton trucks of rubble were removed, added to the 1 400 bags of waste in the same period. It is clear we need to engage with residents to manage their waste better. We will engage with officials to provide more wheelie bins and make available access to the “hokke” where waste is stored for collection. We need residents to take pride in their immediate environment.. Community food garden and relief projects: Under the direction of the urban management department, more funding has been made available to support the sustainable food garden and food relief projects. More about this will be shared in my next column.. SMMEs and local contractors: I want to encourage local SMMEs to register with the sub-council as preferred suppliers on the vendor database. Much work has been done through the local investment facilitation unit in Atlantis through the economic opportunities and asset management department. Small business owners will soon receive a very comprehensive workplace safety brochure to assist all businesses with challenges in the workplace.. Service delivery: This is still our main objective. Residents can assist to log C3 notifications on the City’s website, those who cannot and need assistance can contact their local councillors. Residents, there is so much more to report back to you, but not all can be said in one newsletter. You are welcome to go to our Facebook Page: Subcouncil 1 – Chairperson Cllr Nora Grose, like the page and be informed of all matters in the City of Cape Town and local sub-council matters.
