BREAKING NEWS: FROM THE CHAIRMAN

The ablution facility in the 4th St park has been demolished as promised, and a new facility is under construction. From the size of the foundations it will be about six times as big as the original.

The turning arrows at the corner of Oxford and Riviera are still not finished, although the pavements have been dug up for weeks now.

The accumulated garbage as deposited by vagrants on the motorway embankment at Anerley St has been cleaned up. The garbage was so bad that they have cleaned the embankment down to bare sand – even the surviving weeds are gone.

There is a water leak on the pavement on the 4th Ave bridge again, in the same place as before. The water is leaking quite strongly this time. There is also a water leak on the pavement in Oxford Road, twenty meters south of the Riviera Road intersection. Does anybody still have a contact at JHB Water?

The concrete motorway fence at the 4th Ave bridge has not yet been repaired.

The raised crossings in Killarney Road have not yet commenced. Jo is there any feedback from Council on this yet?

We have yet another new agent from Sothebys taking over in our area. I am working with them to find out what happened to our last newsletter.

I have found a viable paper recycling project, run by Kimberly-Clark. They collect for free, and they pay you 25c per kg if you hand in more than a ton per month (i.e. R250 per ton). A ton of paper is a pile about the size of a washing machine. They provide bins and send collection trucks etc. You can contact them at 011 457 2700, and see also the attached. Jenny, please send this to everyone.

We are still struggling for dustbins around the Mall. Should we maybe run a pamphlet campaign asking individual shops to sponsor dustbins – for R450 per month they can get a big square dustbin with advertising on all 4 sides, on the pavement where their customers park?

Kind regards
