6. FEEDBACK FROM COUNCILLORS
• Cllr Ravid reported that all regions are suffering from very slow service delivery, not only us.
• The street lights still need to be fixed in Riviera Road, at the Oxford Road end.
• The excavations on the pavement in 4th Ave were filled in but have not yet been paved over.
• The water excavation in 9th Street has been addressed, but still needs to be paved.
• The water valve in 3rd Street cnr Killarney Road is still leaking, despite having been reported six months ago.
• Everyone is encouraged to report problems to the municipal hotline – 011 375 5555. Please obtain, and retain, the reference numbers.
• The Vumatel excavations are complete in many places and are being reinstated. Telephone lines were damaged in one case by a digger, but this was fixed promptly by Telkom.
7. TRAFFIC ISSUES
• It was reported that the subsidence of the road surface in 10th Street is getting steadily worse, and there has still been no action.
• The dangerous loose boulders on the eroded embankment in 10th Street have not yet been addressed either.
8. ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES
• It was previously agreed that we should obtain park equipment ourselves, abiding by all the council rules and channels. It will cost about R35,000. It was previously agreed that the NKRA could pay for half of this, but that we will need to source donations from businesses and the general public to cover the rest of the costs. All offers of assistance would be very welcome.
• Kayte’s gardener in the park is working miracles – we continue to receive many compliments on the new look.
• The 2015 Killarney Community Event will be on the 4th Saturday of October, to get slightly warmer weather and to have the jacaranda trees in full blossom. The main focus will be on fun for children. A Planning Committee has been formed to manage this event.
• The Vumatel fibre-optic project is intending to be finished by the end of September. Vumatel can be contacted directly at Killarney@vumatel.co.za or on 086100VUMA, or check their website at www.vumatel.co.za
