NEW FLEET OF VEHICLES AND PLANT MACHINERY EQUIPMENT

Media Release

Executive Mayor of the Bitou Municipality, Councillor Peter Lobese, believes that the new fleet of vehicles acquired by the municipality will make a very positive impact on service delivery to the residents of the entire Plettenberg Bay. The Executive Mayor, at the unveiling of the fleet on 16 September 2020, said that old and broken vehicles and equipment impact negatively on service delivery and the move to acquire these, would enhance service delivery.  

The Municipality received and unveiled the first consignment of the fleet on 23 August 2020, and reported that it was acquired on a three-year lease worth R15 Million. These vehicles and plant machinery will be utilised within the Integrated Waste, Water and Sanitation as well as the Roads Departments of the Bitou Municipality.

Councillor, Mphakamisi Mbali, who is the Chairperson of the Finance Portfolio in Council, believes that it is finance well spent because it strengthens a critical need in the municipality. He says that ageing vehicles, plant machinery and infrastructure has a negative impact on service delivery and by spending on these can lead to improving the services we deliver.

The Municipal Manager, Adv. Ngoqo, also welcomed the equipment. He believes that this will go a long way in the municipality's ongoing quest to deliver excellent services to its residents.
