PUBLIC NOTICE 

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

 

 

ADM HEADQUARTERS, WEDNESDAY, 8 AUGUST 2018.

 

 WATER OUTAGES IN NGQUSHWA

 

 

 

The Amathole District Municipality (ADM) would like to inform Ngqushwa communities of possible water outages owing to vandalism of one of its pump control panels. The pump control panel at the Craig Head raw water pump station which supplies the Peddie Water Treatment works has been vandalised during a strike by Amatola Water staff. The Amatola Water technicians are working tirelessly to rebuild a temporal panel which is expected to be completed today.

 

 

 

Though, once fixed, the Peddie Treatment works will be operational, it will take some time before water supply is back to normal.

NEW FINANCIAL CHIEF IS CONFIDENT ABOUT TURNING THE ADM SHIP AROUND

MEDIA RELEASE 

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

 

NEW FINANCIAL CHIEF IS CONFIDENT ABOUT TURNING THE ADM SHIP AROUND 

 

ADM HEADQUARTERS, Thursday, 12 July 2018.

 

 

 

The newly appointed Amathole District Municipality (ADM) Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Mr. Moatlhodi Lucky Mosala is confident about turning the ADM ship around. “It will take adequate or improved business processes, good governance, consistent and reputable financial principles to turn things around. However, there will need to be a reasonable balance between achieving good audit results and improved service delivery. Again, we must never overlook capable, well experienced staff of the ADM. With the willingness from staff to perform and support from management, we can definitely turn things around,” said a visibly fixated Mosala.

 

Mosala officially assumed his new role on the 02nd of July 2018. The CFO position became vacant after the previous CFO Mrs Nomthandazo Ntshanga resigned early this year. His appointment is in keeping with ADM’s new trajectory and recommitment to “restore the institution’s former glory.” In terms of the Council adopted Municipal Turn Around Strategy (MTAS), a mission to restore ADM’s former glory, the following key pillars will surely play a pivotal role in turning around ADM’s fortunes:

 

·        Leadership Development;

 

·        Institutional Development;

 

·        Service Delivery;

 

·        Local Economic Development;

 

·        Sound Financial Management;

 

·        Good Governance;

 

·        Human Capital Development; and

 

·        Spatial Planning.

 

 

 

The lanky and Klerksdorp born financial management specialist is a man of “numbers’’. He was however quick to point out that “we are all here to serve our people, so to obtain an unqualified audit outcome with no meaningful impact on service delivery is worthless.”

Responding to President Cyril Ramaphosa’s call for government to “honour its undertaking to set aside at least 30 percent of public procurement to SMMEs, cooperatives and township and rural enterprises,” ADM’s new financial ‘Chief’ also believes that ADM has a huge role to play in supporting SMMEs. “It is important that we support our SMMEs, that is the only way we can create jobs,” he said.

Mosala has recently completed his Masters Degree in Business Administration (MBA) and has extensive eighteen (18) years of experience in local government, more than 10 years of which he worked as a CFO. He worked for Municipalities such as Xhariep District Municipality (2002-2007), Gariep Local Municipality (2007 -2014) as well as Great Kei Local Municipality (2014-2017). Before joining ADM, Mosala worked as a Regional Manager at Sebata Municipal Solutions.

In welcoming him to the ADM family, Municipal Manager Dr. Thandekile Mnyimba had this to say: “We would like to firstly congratulate Mr. Mosala on his new appointment. His wealth of experience in financial management, will surely go a long way in our concerted effort to reposition brand ADM. On behalf of the entire ADM family, I would like to wish him well during his stay in ADM. May he be that beacon of hope in resolute journey to restore ADM’s former glory.”

AMATHOLE DISTRICT MUNICIPALITY APPROVED TARRIFS FOR 2018/2019 FINANCIAL YEAR

AMATHOLE DISTRICT MUNICIPALITY APPROVED TARRIFS FOR 2018/2019 FINANCIAL YEAR

 

Section 75(A) (3) (B) (ii) states that after a resolution has been taken by the municipality on the tariffs, the Municipal Manager may publish in a newspaper of general circulation in the municipality a notice stating that a copy of the resolution is available for public inspection during office hours at the main administrative office of the municipality (Waverly Office Park | 3—33 Phillip Frame | Chiselhurst | 5247) and at all our offices throughout the district. 

Amathole District Municipality has increased its Water, Sanitation, Fire and Sundry Services tariffs for 2018/19 financial year by 14.7%.

 

The double digit increase came about after ADM conducted an independent study.

 

The study focused on analysing the cost reflectiveness of the tariffs. Hence in order for ADM to break even in the 2018/19 financial year, a tariff increase of 14.7% will have to be implemented effective from 01 July 2018. A key cost driver is the cost of purchasing water from the Water Board that has increased by 9.46%. The increase in the tariffs is also aimed at promoting water conservation of this scarce resource in a drought plagued district.
