Making food for Mondeor Saps, Kibler Firestation & our local security company D&D. (31-12-2017)

150 boerewors rolls, here we come.

 

Morning, the foreman informed me that he sent a plumber to check in Mulbarton if all the valves are fully open. (26-12-2017)

So it might either be valves or airlock that’s causing the issue in Mulbarton. Ferrox Drive was also repaired last night.

Please be aware that if there’s a airlock and you open your taps, your meter will give you an inflated reading. Keep your taps closed for the moment

Media Statement (15-12-2017)

The JMPD Recovery Unit received a complaint from a female motorist on Tuesday, 12 December 2017. The motorist alleged that her silver grey Polo was cloned and that she was receiving traffic fines and an e-toll bill which was not for her. As a result she could not renew her vehicle's license disc, she also discovered that the other vehicle was registered in Mpumalanga.

The JMPD Number Plate Investigation Unit was immediately assigned to start an investigation, and they discovered that the cloned car was in Hammanskraal and it was confirmed to be cloned at the Themba Police Station on Wednesday, 13 December. The car was confiscated but the owner wasn't arrested because he provided a transaction printout which he obtained from a dealership in Springs . The dealership will now be charged for the illegal registration of a vehicle, and the matter is being investigated further.

A resident had issues with power, cable fault which was difficult to find. (13-12-2017)

I got City Power to do a temporary fix by giving them electricity by connecting them to the street light.

Needless to say ........ they were very happy to have electricity after a few days without it.

The cable was fixed eventually 💙

   

This afternoon these 2 pitched up at my house saying they are from Pikitup looking for “Christmas” (09-12-2017)

I asked a few questions and it became very clear that they do not work for Pikitup at all. I had them arrested for fraud.

Pikitup employees are forbidden from soliciting “gifts” from residents. They can be dismissed.

Please DO NOT give anyone who says they were for the city entities money or goods as they get paid bonus from them.

If this happens to you, please call your CPF / SAPS to deal with them and lay charges. If your not in my ward, make sure your Cllr is informed so that they can alert their local Pikitup depot of the situation.

   

Did the launch of the Festive Season at Mall of the South and turned on The Christmas Tree lights. (08-12-2017)

City of Johannesburg Press Statement by MMC Cllr Funzela Ngobeni, Development Planning (01-12-2017)

City’s filing system improves service delivery

01 December 2017 Release: Immediate

Efforts by the City of Johannesburg’s Building Development Management Directorate to improve and update the current filing and archiving system is starting to bear fruit.

Before the launch of the new system, the City’s seven regions undertook the task of identifying all files within their offices and delivered them to Metro Centre in Braamfontein to ensure that documents are filed in one central place.

This follows an in-depth analysis of the internal data management system, which previously posed a risk of significant information loss due to the lack of regular back-up protocols.

Since the introduction of the new system, retrieval of files has improved drastically resulting in improved customer service. Regions are now required to submit applications at Metro Centre on a daily basis to ensure that the retrieval of documents is easier. This will further reduce the risk of losing more than the minimum should a catastrophic event occur.

The new and improved system of recording is done alphabetically per region, operated on a box and shelving combination. It houses building plans that are used by homeowners, buyers and property developers in the City of Joburg.

The storage vaults now house 175 000 files, which has resulted in a systematic, efficient and transparent filing system resulting in easier retrieval of documents.

Yolanda Jansen van Vuuren, Project Leader of the new filing system, says “the data backups stored in the departmental vaults also ensure that the data is in a secure location that is distinct from the source data”.

Although the applications have been concluded, they are retrieved on a daily basis as and when requested by members of the public who require copies of their building plans.

“Before the implementation of the current system, it was hard to locate files but things are much better now and we can only improve, to serve our residents much quicker and efficiently,” adds Jansen van Vuuren.

It is estimated that of the current 11 holding areas, only six will be populated once the referencing is concluded, which will in turn free up more space to accommodate about 315 000 new files.
