I would like to send best wishes to all the Matric students in Kouga who are busy writing their final exams.
It is an exciting part of a young persons life with many changes and challenges laying ahead.
One thing I know for sure, that no matter where in Kouga you live, this area will always be regarded as home for you!
The public participation process that will help us draw up a 5 year plan for Kouga, is well underway.
We have met with residents of Oyster Bay, St Francis Bay and Humansdorp over the past week and are coming to a close understanding of what residents expect from Kouga Municipality.
Thank you to all who have attended the meetings.
The December holiday season is almost upon us and we are working hard to ensure that the Kouga is ready for the influx of holiday makers.
We have identified critical service delivery challenges and have come with solutions.
Extra vehicles will be hired over the season to deal with waste collection and to ensure our service departments like water and electricity will be capacitated to deal with the problems that will arise during the holiday season.
Extra lifeguards and Law Enforcement officials have been appointed to ensure the safety of our visitors.
Inspections of electrical lines have also been undertaken to ensure preventative maintenance prior to the holiday season has been done.
