3.    APPROVAL OF MINUTES OF PREVIOUS MEETING

The Minutes of the previous meeting were taken as read, and were approved.

 

4.    SECURITY FEEDBACK / SECTOR CRIME FORUM

§   Warrant Officer Bester is busy on operations, and was not present.

§   The hawkers and loiterers in 7th Street were removed by JMPD, but new people have already taken their place. The evicted hawkers are complaining to us about the unfairness of the new hawkers operating in their old location. A continual effort from JMPD is required here. Liora will continue to call JMPD as often as she can.

§   All residents were again asked to take photos of liquor sellers and other criminals, and to send the photos to Wayne at wdford@global.co.za. Also, please immediately phone the SAPS patrol van on their direct line – 071 675 6001 so that the police can catch the criminals in the act and arrest them.

§   Our by-laws enforcement officers are JMPD Officer Mbali for south of the motorway (up the hill) on 078 309 7297, and JMPD Sgt Jona for north of the motorway (down the hill) on (011) 490 1630 /1684 or 083 399 2835. Please contact them directly whenever you notice any by-law problems.

§   The CPF has elected as the new chair Mr Johannes Modudu, of the Joubert Park sector. Matters will now once more proceed according to the constitution.

§   Penny Steyn will be contacted for details of her MAD Domestic Watch program.

 

5.    TRAFFIC ISSUES

§   Our new traffic safety measures have been completed and paid for.

§   We are researching additional projects already, at the intersection of 3rd Street and 4th Avenue, at the intersection of Riviera Road and 4th Avenue, and outside the Mall garage exit in Killarney Road. It was requested to also consider 10th Street.

 

6.    ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES

§   The M1 embankment alongside the broken fence in 7th St still needs additional cleaning. Liora will continue to pursue this matter for us.

§   A large number of additional pavement rubbish bins have been delivered to our area, and are in the process of being installed along the major pedestrian routes. Jo and Clr Ravid are requested to supply contact details for Mr Tree of PikiTup, so that we can send an appropriate letter of thanks to him (and his boss).

§   These new bins will probably fill up faster than PikiTup are able to clear. All buildings are therefore requested to “adopt” the bins on their pavements, and to have your staff empty them whenever needed into your own internal recycling/refuse system, so as to help keep the environment tidy and attractive.

§   Clr Ravid is requested to also arrange for the storm-water drains to be cleared, especially those in 4th Ave, as some of these are completely blocked.

§   There has been no progress yet re the sale of the Lhenveolan building.

§   The Mall has informed us that the cinemas will probably only be re-opening in January, and they will have some new restaurants opening on the lower floor as well.

§   The pavement competition is on track. Nomsa Nene is distributing the latest newsletter already with the rules, and judging will take place in early December.

§   Could somebody please help to remove the bin in the road in 7th St outside Nedbank?

 

7.    NEWSLETTER

§   Nomsa Nene of WMP is in the process of distributing the latest newsletter.

 

8.    FINANCE AND MEMBERSHIP

9.    GENERAL

§   Re the mall – It was reported that able-bodied persons are abusing the disabled parking bays, to the detriment of disabled shoppers.

 

The meeting closed with thanks to all attendees.
