Improved quality of life through balanced, sustainable development & service excellence.
Our approach and commitment to effective service delivery is premised in our understanding of the new development trajectory as encapsulated in the 2014 vision and objectives of government at all levels, that is, to grow the economy; tackle poverty and unemployment; and promote social inclusion. In so doing we are focused and decisive. We continuously weigh trade - offs and make our choices aimed at achieving the said vision and objectives of government.
As part of our infrastructure development and capacitating and supporting our local municipalities, in the past financial year we purchased plant and equipment for road maintenance, fire fighting and waste removal to the tune of R 19.5 million. This figure excludes special projects such as the Completion of Emalahleni Fire Station and the building of the Zakheni bridge in Thembisile Hani Local Municipality, both projects which will cost more than R25 million.
In dealing with the challenges relating amongst others to water and sanitation backlogs, the NDM has made significant investments in Water and Sanitation infrastructure in the District during the 2009/10 financial year. A comparative investment committed during the preceding financial years is presented under the Technical Services Departmental report.
