Regarding advice if you need hospitalization : 


Small operations can be done at the Humansdorp Hospital which is a very clean and well run hospital.

If you have to go into PE for major surgery : 
Take a blanket or a duvet and pillow. As well as slippers and a dressing gown if possible , pajamas and clothes , 
toothbrush, toothpaste  etc... as well as toilet paper may be needed. The pre operation ward is pretty hectic  but after the operation the wards are much quieter. 
When I went into the pre operation  Ward it was weekend , so allot of people next to me were stab and gunshot wounds and the like. 

So if you are going for a scheduled operation make sure you try to go during the week and not the weekend . It is best to have a friend or family with you when you go in 
and to visit if possible especially if you go into pre operation ( and especially on the weekend ) . 

If you do not have medical aid or money to pay for an operation in a private hospital it is a good option and fully paid by the state which can save you allot on 
hospital expenses. They give you all medication for free.  

The Livingstone hospital was cleaner and more efficient than I expected. Competent staff and Doctors and cleaner than I thought it would be . 
You can catch a bus/ambulance  from Humansdorp Hospital to the Livingstone Hospital in PE and back for no charge . 

I hope that this helps to keep you informed.  Remember prevention is better than cure. 
Stay well. 

Garth Ford

I was asked why the JBRA is not perceived or seen to be doing anything and to explain and make it public.  So here it is :


The problems that are rectified because of our hard work is not recognized because the rectified situation is then perceived as normal ~the way it should be , but actually took allot of unnecessary work to get it right . Thus work done that is unseen and unappreciated . Wavecrest water that has improved etc... 

With more support more would be done . Why don't you join the JBRA committee? If the JBRA is ineffective it is because of lack of support . If we do not keep pressure on the KM then everything falls apart . But this takes time and energy . The results are very seldom actually "visible" because once a problem is solved it is perceived as though nothing has been achieved or improved and that no effort went into it from JBRA to get it right . After all , problems addressed and solved are not recognised , but only perceived as the norm , the way they should be. This is understandable , but untrue . 


Our work is very daunting , hard and frustrating . Join the JBRA and make a difference . Everybody has an opinion but nobody wants to get their hands dirty . Well done to everyone who does voluntary help in the community . We take our hats off to you . Thank you ! But there are also much more pressing and important issues like how our town is being managed , developed and run . Sometimes creating the problems that could be avoided . Obviously these problems should not exist in the first place , but they do ! We need community support to turn this around . I am very grateful for community projects and support where I can , I am tired of working myself to a stand still , and then still get asked "What are you doing ? " . No offence , but that is just not fair or acceptable .


Wavecrest water was a problem for more than 5 years before I and the committee climbed in . This took repetitive Ward meetings and meetings with KM . Finally it is improved and will still be improved even more in the future . Most of the issues on the 100 reasons petition were addressed by myself and JBRA committee members at IDP and Ward meetings and we would not have been able to legally petition any issues unless this was done beforehand by JBRA and myself . The JBRA very carefully listed almost all of the 100 reasons . Sewerage problems that are now being addressed because of us , the new upgraded sewerage sub stations and the new reticulation plant etc... are partly or largely a result of JBRA work. 

Roads are another major issue that need dire attention at the moment and the budget needs to be adjusted accordingly . Following up on this takes hugely unnecessary laborious time and effort on our part , often with no positive result.


Please Post any problems directly onto this facebook group . Or call Vincent McCarthy ( our Chairman ) or myself . Vincent : 083 707 7608 or email : mccarthyvb@gmail.com . 

Myself : 078 234 9791 or email garthford@gmail.com .


We care very much about the town and the people that live here . Unlike all other groups , ALL of the people in our group are residents in J.Bay .


Thank you and stay well .

JBRA Secretary /Vice Chairman

Meeting with Kouga Municipality to address the March for 100 reasons Petition ( 20/08/2015 )

 

The meeting had to be re scheduled a two hours later and was cut short as the Mr Fadi and Mr Oosthuizen  had to attend a meeting with St Francis Bay Residents Association.

It was decided we should at least make a start and address some issues and make some progress . The JBRA encouraged a solution based approach to our problems by suggesting alternative solutions to existing problems as apposed to just complaining about them.

 

We managed to cover the first 20 issues as well as urgent prominent issues like pot holes . It was emphasised by JBRA that our roads need to be permanently and properly re surfaced instead of just keeping on fixing pot holes that constantly reform and that the amount allocated to fix roads in the whole of Kouga is only R3.8 million which the  JBRA insists is  totally inadequate for the whole of Kouga and needs to be addressed and increased at the next budget meeting that will be held at the end of this month. Garth Ford suggested that they fix the immediate worst pot holes and then most importantly also allocate extra funds at the next budget meeting to have the worst sections permanently re surfaced on an ongoing weekly/monthly basis so that all of the worst sections are eventually properly resurfaced for a permanent repair. Also the amount of vehicles needed to fix pot holes needs to be increased with fewer but more active workers per team/vehicle.    

 

 The JBRA thanked the KM for the improvements to the Wavecrest water purification plant as Wavecrest now has perfectly good drinking water at last which has been tested and it has been established to be satisfactory. The results of the water tests will also be made available for public scrutiny.

The KM said that the Wavecrest water purification plant now has properly trained permanent staff and has been properly fenced. The new filtration system is a great improvement and KM will be expanding on this in due course .  It was also established that money owing to P.E. for water  has now been paid up.

Garth Ford stressed that the old ailing asbestos water mains that keep leaking such as in Waterkant street need to be replaced instead of just constantly fixing ongoing  leaks at ongoing costs.

Also the valve systems needs to be properly investigated and upgraded for efficiency . 

 

The Chairman of JBRA thanked the KM for starting to address the upgrading of the sewerage pump stations and we look forward to development improvements in this regard . The Chairman of JBRA who is qualified in this field gave sound advice while emphasizing that these stations should be developed more sensibly and efficiently and at a lower cost thus saving money. The Chairman of JBRA who is also in charge of street lights for Ward 8 said that these are being monitored by him and are being repaired but emphasized that longer lasting LED lights would use less electricity and last longer.

 

Need for more steel drum dustbins around town that need to be regularly emptied was emphasised .

It was established that KM will soon begin installing water borne sewerage systems for some areas .

 

To view the full list of 100 reasons for the Petition with the KM response and also the JBRA response to the KM response please visit the JBRA website at  www.jbayra.com

JBRA Newsletter June 2015 

The new Jeffreys Bay Residents and Ratepayers Association would like to

welcome you to our first Newsletter for 2015 .

The new Committee is well on track with some interesting improvements . Please enjoy  .

 

New Members and Committee Members needed for JBRA

The JBRA is desperately looking for new members and especially new committee members .

Residents do not always realise that the JBRA is busy looking after the interests of the Residents and Ratepayers . We work very hard on a voluntary basis sacrificing our personal time and effort to ensure that your / our interests are looked after and attended to .

We are in particular need of someone who can manage and upgrade our website on a voluntary basis . This will not require much time or effort . 

We will offer you free advertising on our website for your efforts !

The JBRA Committee meets monthly to discuss and address all of our issues to ensure the proper development of our Town .

The more Committee Members that we have the less workload there will be

for us and we will be able to achieve much more  .

We would like to encourage Business membership , advertising and sponsorship to have a mutually beneficial relationship . We look after the community and businesses that keep the town afloat .

 

March for 100 reasons Petition Committee follow up

The JBRA is following up on the March for 100 reasons Petition and has met with the Petition Committee on Tuesday the 23rd of June to discuss and ensure that these issues are attended to .

We will be having monthly meetings with KM and quarterly meetings with the Petition Committee

from Bisho to follow up on all of these issues to make sure that they are properly and permanently addressed .  We are looking for a real change for the better . And to ensure this .

 

 

Annual April Festival for Jeffreys Bay

Among other initiatives we would like to encourage the establishment of a permanent Annual April Festival for Jeffreys Bay and call on all residents to become involved with developing and promoting this , creating arts and crafts stalls , activities stalls ( hit the cans with a tennis ball and win a teddy bear etc...  ) , food stalls or any other way to enhance and grow to develop an permanent Annual Festival in April .

A sort of re organised and re invented Shell Festival that grows a little bit every year .

From big events such as live music or even theater to s simple stall that sells locally made arts and crafts

or we could host a major arts and products fair .  Or just pancakes .

We are tired of cell phone cover shops , T Shirts , knives and belts  and sunglasses  etc….  Let us create something different and meaningful .

A permanent Annual Festival . For Summer .

Please contact us if you are interested in being involved in any of the above .

With Kouga Municipality co operation we can make this work and develop well and safely .

 

 

Ward Meetings and IDP

We would also like to encourage Residents to join their Ward Committee or attend their Ward meetings to have their say .  Ward 8 is very active with a full committee and Ward 3 and 11 needing more participation. Ward 8 committee members currently receive remuneration for petrol and other costs.

The other wards are also due to follow suite as they develop and become more active .     

These are the official channels offered to us by KM . We can achieve much through public participation .

 

 

World Surfing Reserves initiative

Our World Surfing Reserves presentation meeting was very well attended and went very well . Thank you to the highly qualified Honorary Professor Andy Short for his presentation . A Local Committee is to be formed including representatives from Kouga Municipality , JBU, JBRA , and NMMU to assimilate our submissions to World Surfing Reserves . The whole process will take up to one year .

So... hold thumbs please.

Nothing major will change except that these areas will be given recognition and will be better managed and conserved with local involvement and participation. We would also like to prevent the removal of reef life from the rocks along Supertubes to Kabeljauws so that the reef can recover properly and re establish itself for permanent growth and perpetuity.  Fishing from the shore will actually improve !

The JBRA will be actively involved in the process of having Jeffreys Bay shores from Secrets / Magnatubes to Albatross ( about 1 mile ) declared a World Surfing Reserve in conjunction with the JBU , Supertubes Surfing Foundation and Nelson Mandela Bay University and Kouga Municipality .

The area of influence and reserve would also possibly also be extended to include the areas of the Kabeljauws estuary and Nature Reserve including all of our dune and beach areas up to main beach and Kitchen Windows . . The World Surfing Reserves generally extend up to 400m out to sea and includes the undeveloped natural areas of the adjoining natural indigenous

shore areas ( beach and dune areas ) .

 

 

Kwela Town of the Year

Jeffreys Bay is also one of the finalists for the Kwela Town of the Year competition with an award of 

R1 million to the winner .  Please vote for Jeffreys Bay via sms , it will be a big boost for the town .

Jeffreysbaai se Dorp van die Jaar makietie word op Saterdag, 4 Julie 2015 gehou. Ons beplan 'n pretdag, met kosstalletjies, vermaak en kunsstalletjies. Daar sal baie aktiwiteite wees vir die kinders, onder andere Zorb balle, die "Rocket" en die "American Express" trein.

One of the sponsors of the Dorp van die Jaar competition - Afgri - will be hosting a dog show, including a dog walk, dog and child photo shoot, puppy show as well as an agility show. More information to follow.

Bespreek vandag nog jou stalletjie - vir meer inligting, stuur 'n epos aan info@victorycs.co.za.

Please email info@victorycs.co.za to book your stall today. Food stalls at R450 each, drinks stalls at R200 each and craft stalls at R150 each.

 

 

First woman Mayor for Jeffreys Bay

The JBRA has met with the new Madam Mayor Daphne Kettledas to introduce ourselves and welcome her as Mayor . This is the first time that Kouga has a woman Mayor , let us give her the best support that she deserves . We were very impressed with her friendly positive accommodating attitude as she listened to our problems with concern .  We are trying to encourage better co operation with KM . The fact that the new Mayor has opted for a cheaper vehicle indicates that she is willing to compromise to ensure that KM issues are a priority . We believe that this is an opportunity for a real change for the better . Thank you .

 


Our Facebook Page and Group

Most importantly please support the JBRA , we are here to help you the Resident and ensure the proper growth and development of Jeffreys Bay.

We now have a new Facebook Group ( Jeffreys Bay residents and Ratepayers Association Group )

to compliment our Facebook Page ( Jeffreys Bay Residents and Ratepayers Association ) .

Please like and follow the Facebook Group and Page . Thank you .

 

Younger Generation JBRA Membership and JBRA Committee support

We are looking for enthusiastic concerned residents to join the JBRA Committee and get involved in

J.Bay affairs .

We are also looking for members of the younger generations to join us as well so that our future is well represented with their interests and concerns in mind as well  ~  For the Future .  

We are looking for your support and would like to encourage you to become paid up members at only R100 per year . That is a small price to pay to have your interests and concerns addressed and  attended to by people who are working voluntarily for your interests .

You can also become a registered unpaid member .

We urge all residents and ratepayers to make contact with the JBRA should you have any problems or opinions to voice . Please make contact and come and talk to us before criticizing our efforts so that we can make a positive difference together.

Jeffreys Baai Inwooners en Belastingbetaalers Vereeneging  ( JBIV )

Nuusbrief , Junie 2015 

 

Nuwe lede en komiteelede word benodig vir JBRA

JBRA is dringend op soek na nuwe lede en veral nuwe komiteelede.

Inwoners besef nie altyd dat die JBRA besig is om na die belange van die inwoners en belastingbetalers om te sien. JBRA komiteelede werk baie hard, op 'n vrywillige basis en in hulle persoonlike tyd, om te verseker dat daar na al die inwoners en belastingbetalers van Jeffreysbaai se belange omgesien word.

JBRA is in die besonder op soek na iemand wat op 'n vrywillige basis kan help om ons webwerf op te gradeer en te bestuur. Dit sal nie veel tyd of moeite verg nie. In ruil daarvoor kan die betrokke persoon gratis adverteer op ons webwerf vir sy/haar moeite.

Die JBRA Komitee vergader maandeliks om probleme wat onder ons aandag gebring is te bespreek en aan te spreek om sodoende die behoorlike ontwikkeling van ons dorp te verseker. Hoe meer komiteelede JBRA dus het hoe minder sal die werklas wees vir die bestaande JBRA komiteelede en hoe meer sal JBRA in staat wees om te bereik.

 

Opvolg van die "March for 100 Reasons" Petisie

JBRA volg op, op die "March for 100 Reasons" Petisie en het op die 23ste Junie 2015 met die Petisie Komitee van Bisho en die verteenwoordigers van Kouga Munisipaliteit (KM)) vergader om die knelpunte in die petisie te bespreek en te verseker dat die aangeleenthede wat aangespreek word in die petisie aandag geniet en opgelos word.

JBRA sal maandelikse vergaderings met die verteenwoordigers van KM hou en kwartaallikse vergaderings met die Petisie Komitee van Bisho hou om op te volg op al die knelpunte wat vermeld word in die "100 Reasons" Petisie en om te verseker dat die knelpunte behoorlik en permanent aangespreek word.

 

Jaarlikse April Fees vir Jeffreysbaai

Onder ander inisiatiewe wil JBRA graag die vestiging van 'n permanente Jaarlikse April Fees vir Jeffreysbaai bewerkstellig en 'n beroep gedoen op alle inwoners /sakegemeenskap van Jeffreysbaai om betrokke te raak by die ontwikkeling en bevordering van hierdie April Fees, en wel in die volgende opsigte; die skep van kuns en naaldwerk stalletjies, aktiwiteite stalletjies (gooi al die blikkies raak met 'n tennisbal en wen 'n teddiebeer, tombola, ens ...), kos stalletjies of op enige ander manier om die fees te verbeter, te laat groei en te laat ontwikkel tot 'n permanente jaarlikse fees in April. 

Kontak ons ​​asseblief indien u belangstel om by enige van die bogenoemde betrokke te raak of enige voorstelle het.

 

 Wyksvergaderings en Integrated Development Plan  Vergaderings

Ons wil graag inwoners aanmoedig om by hul wykskomitees aan te sluit of ten minste die wyksvergaderings by te woon om sodoende 'n geleentheid te hê om hul sê te sê. Wyk 8 is ‘n baie aktiewe Wyk en het 'n vol Wykskomitee. Wyk 3 en Wyk 11 is nie so suksesvol nie en het meer deelname nodig. Lede van Wyk 8 se komitee ontvang tans vergoeding vir petrol en ander koste. Die ander wyke sal ook laasgenoemde kan doen soos wat hulle ontwikkel en meer mense aktief betrokke raak by die wyksvergaderings en hulle wykskomitees.

Hierdie is die amptelike kanale wat deur KM aan ons gebied word om ons griewe aan hulle te rig. Ons kan baie bereik deur openbare deelname.

 

 "World Surfing Reserve" Inisiatief

Ons "World Surfing Reserve" bekendstellings vergadering was baie goed bygewoon en het baie goed afgeloop. Baie dankie aan die hoogs gekwalifiseerde Ereprofessor Andy Short vir sy aanbieding.

'n Plaaslike komitee sal gestig word wat verteenwoordigers sal insluit van Kouga Munisipaliteit, JBU, JBRA, Supertubes Surfing Foundation en NMMU om te werk aan die voorlegging aan die "World Surfing Reserves" om Jeffreysbaai ‘n “World Surfing Reserve” te laat verklaar. Die hele proses sal ongeveer een jaar duur.

So ... hou duim vas asseblief.

Geen groot veranderinge sal plaasvind nie, behalwe dat hierdie areas erkenning sal geniet en beter bestuur en bewaar sal word deur middel van plaaslike betrokkenheid en deelname.Ons wil graag die verwydering van die rif lewe op die rotse vanaf Supertubes tot by Kabeljauws verhoed sodat die rif behoorlik kan herstel en weer homself kan vestig vir permanente groei om bewaar te word vir die nageslag. Visvang vanaf die strand sal dan ook verbeter.

JBRA sal, in samewerking met die verteenwoordigers van KM, JBU, Supertubes Surfing Foundation en Nelson Mandela Bay Universiteit, aktief betrokke wees in die proses om Jeffreysbaai se strandfront vanaf "Secrets/Magnatubes” tot by “Albatross" (ongeveer 2km) as 'n "World Surfing Reserve" verklaar te kry. Die betrokke gebied en bewaringsarea moet ook uitgebrei word om die gebiede vanaf die Kabeljauwsriviermond en -reservaat asook ons duine en strand gebiede tot en met die hoof strand in te sluit. Die "World Surfing Reserve" strek tot en met 500m seewaards en sluit die onontwikkelde natuurlike gebiede van die aangrensende strand gebiede (strand en duin gebiede) in.

 

Kwela Dorp van die Jaar

Jeffreysbaai is ook een van die finaliste vir die “Kwêla Dorp van die Jaar-kompetisie” met 'n toekenning van R1miljoen se advertensie reklame op TV aan die wenner. 

Stem asseblief vir Jeffreysbaai via sms, dit sal 'n groot hupstoot vir die dorp wees.

Jeffreysbaai se Dorp van die Jaar makietie woord op Saterdag 4 Julie 2015 by Mentorskraal gehou. Ons beplan 'n pretdag met kosstalletjies, vermaak en kunsstalletjies. Daar sal baie aktiwiteite wees vir die kinders, onder andere, Zorb balle, die "Rocket" en die "American Express" trein.

Een van die borge van die “Dorp van die Jaar-kompetisie” - Afgri - bied 'n hondeskou aan, wat sal insluit 'n honde pretstap, hond en kind fotosessie, klein hondjie kompetisie sowel as 'n behendigheid vertooning. Meer inligting hieroor volg.

Eerste Vroue Burgemeester vir Jeffreysbaai

JBRA het die voorreg gehad om die nuwe Mevrou Burgemeester Daphne Kettledas ontmoet. Dit is die eerste keer dat Kouga 'n vroue burgemeester het, kom ons gee haar die ondersteuning wat sy nodig het. Ons was baie beïndruk met haar vriendelike, positiewe en akkommoderende houding toe sy ons probleme, met kommer, aangehoor het. Ons probeer om beter samewerking met KM aan te moedig. Die feit dat die nuwe burgemeester 'n goedkoper voertuig as ampsvoertuig gekies het, bewys dat sy bereid is om te kompromitteer om te verseker dat KM kwessies prioriteit geniet. Ons glo dat hierdie optrede 'n geleentheid is vir 'n verandering vir die beste.

 

 

Ons “Facebook Page” en “Facebook Group”

Ondersteun asseblief vir JBRA, ons is hier om jou, die inwoner en belastingbetaler, te help en om te verseker dat Jeffreysbaai behoorlik groei en ontwikkeling in 'n dorp waarop ons almal kan trots wees.

Ons het ook nou 'n nuwe “Facebook” Groep bekend as “Jeffreys Bay Residents and Ratepayers Association Group” om ons “Facebook” blad bekend as “Jeffreys Bay Residents and Ratepayers Association” te komplimenteer.

Sluit asseblief aan by ons “Facebook” groep en "like" ons “Facebook” blad om die nuutse JBRA nuus te ontvang.

 

JBRA Lidmaatskap en JBRA Komiteelede

Ons is op soek na entoesiastiese en besorgde inwoners om by die JBRA Komitee aan te sluit en betrokke te raak by Jeffreysbaai sake.

Ons is ook op soek na lede van die jonger generasies om by die JBRA komitee aan te sluit om sodoende te verseker dat hulle belange en bekommernisse ook in gedagte gehou word waar ons die toekoms van Jeffreysbaai beplan en op die hart dra.

Ons versoek dat u ons asseblief sal ondersteun en moedig u aan om 'n betaalde lid van JBRA te word teen slegs R100 per jaar. Dit is 'n klein bedraggie om te betaal om te verseker dat u belange en bekommernisse deur mense, wat vrywillig werk, beskerm word. U kan selfs 'n geregistreerde onbetaalde lid word. Vir meer navrae kontak ons gerus op ons “Facebook” blad of groep.

 

Ons moedig alle Inwoners en Belastingbetalers om kontak met die JBRA te maak indien u enige probleme of menings het. Maak asseblief kontak met ons , en kom gesels met ons voor jy ons pogings kritiseer , dan kan ons saam 'n positiewe verskil maak . Dankie .

Jeffreys Bay's World Famous stretch of coast to be proposed as a 
World Surfing Reserve  

Anton Mclaughlan , a Jeffreys Bay Resident  and  the  JBRA has set up a meeting to try to have Jefferys Bay coastline declared a World Surfing Reserve .
To be held at KM Council Chambers on the 22nd of June with a presentation by Andy Short representing World Surfing Reserves who is flying in from overseas at his own expense to be here . 
The meeting and presentation will be attended by all relevant KM officials , Koffie Jacobs ,
Supertubes Surfing Foundation and other roleplayers  . 
We would like to ensure that the World Famous Surfing Break of Supertubes Reef Mile is properly conserved and looked after and protected . 
The Supertubes Reef  Life currently needs to be allowed to recover to acceptable levels of sustainability for survival . 
Our reef life here should be thriving as it did  10 or 20  years ago with abundant reef life  .
Red Bait , Sea Urchins , Sand Worm , Octypus ,
This will even improve fishing along our shores .
This will also hopefully also ensure that all of our  dune and beaches coastline is properly protected , conserved and looked after.

**********************************8

********************************************

                                              Residents and Ratepayers March for 100 Reasons

 

 

Electricity

1. Poor maintenance and development of electrical infrastructure . Damage to foodstuffs and electrical appliances during long outages

2. Meter readings are not consistently monitored and not managed properly

3. Inadequate street lighting in many areas especially St Francis

4. Pre paid meter Admin Fee should not apply

5. Illegal connections not disconnected

 

Waste Management

6. Non removal of fallen trees and foliage

7. Dustbins not serviced in the Central business District and Beaches , not enough dustbins in other areas . Areas like Pellsrus have none .  

8. There is no Garden Refuse Dumping site in town wasting fuel in tough economic times making it difficult to eradicate alien overgrowth thus increasing risk of fires and crime

9. There is no General Refuse Dump site in town wasting fuel in tough economic times and causing people to dump anywhere thus further degrading the town

10. Pick up litter not only in tourist areas . More dustbins and refuse control in township areas

 

 

Water

11. No proper budgeting for water infrastructure maintenance.  Money still owing for P.E. water

12. Old water mains pipes need to be replaced, not just constantly repaired at huge ongoing costs

13. Excessive wastage of water from burst pipes and through bleeding from fire hydrants

14. Residents have to constantly replace geysers and elements at ongoing extra costs  because of dirty water with excessive Manganese .

15. Linen and clothes are permanently stained and ruined by brown water with Manganese . This cost should be refunded by the Municipality

16. Water unhealthy to drink because of excess Manganese . There is not enough permanent Technical staff at the water purification plant and the permanent and non permanent staff is not properly trained on using chemicals and equipment .

They are also not working on a 24 hour cycle and therefore do not manage the Plant effectively . Equipment is not maintained and utilised properly and are out of order continuously . The water purification plant are not funded properly and not monitored by management in order to ensure healthy drinking water . This can not be ignored any longer because of excess Manganese . This situation needs to treated as an emergency situation and is not negotiable any longer .

17. Technical staff at water purification plant are not properly trained or absent from duties and do not manage the plant on a 24 hour cycle  

18 . Water facilitation and management in townships is inadequate   

19. Water tests are never made public or revealed. How safe is our drinking water really ?? According to available reports , the water with Manganese can not be consumed and it can not be boiled . Children and older people need to drink water that is bought . Allot of residents can not afford to buy water daily .

Dr. Steynberg who did one of the Reports for the Department of Water Affairs said that : As soon as the water is brown it is unhealthy . 

 

 

Sewerage

20. No Plans , delay of plans for , or non implementation of water borne sewerage in many areas   

21. Sewerage spills at public toilets in Season and all of town the whole year

22. Sewerage running into public areas , sea and beach and lagoon at Kabeljouws and Main Beach

23. Poor reactive maintenance of pump stations

24. No back up generators for peak periods or load shedding effects like December

25. Sewerage in public areas must be treated as an emergency situation and must be acted on immediately

26. No properly trained permanent local staff at sewerage reticulation plant 

27 . Not enough ablution facilities on different beach areas and not properly managed.  We do not look after tourists who are on Holiday!

28. Backlog in mobile sewerage removal . Not enough trucks . Drivers must be bribed to act  

29. Proper sewerage and sanitation facilities in the townships is a major problem

And is not being addressed properly or not at all .

 

Finance  

30 . Traffic Department in Humansdorp has not paid R21 million plus 3 million interest per month  owing to E Natis

31. Increase of salaries are not performance based which leads to low standards and low service delivery levels

 

Kouga Municipality Service  and Staff

32. Why is tourism not a priority ?

33. Outsourcing should be focused on locals as a priority

34. Kouga Management does not live in the local area and therefor do not experience the problems in town first hand . 

35. Selective pick up of refuse . Also they leave a mess

36. Lack of By Law Enforcement

37. Lack of Traffic Officials at Peak Times

38. Lack of forward planning for maintenance and service delivery

39. Staff attitude is negative  . No performance management system , therefore no performance

40. Staff leave in December is not managed properly.  Emergency staff should not be able to go on leave.  Traffic personnel should be on duty every day during holiday periods

41. Employees do not keep to working hours.  No supervision and disciplinary procedures.

42. Low standards and slow reactive action are acceptable for employees.  Reason no supervision and management, no established work standards and no performance management.  Residents will not accept this. Proactive planning and action is essential.

43. Kouga employees have no work pride.  Reason can be unclear or no job specifications and job standards. Example :  Robot that was fixed in December but flashed yellow and green at the same time.

44. Role and Functions of Councilors are not clear to the community.

45. Procedures and processes for reporting of problems by residents are not acted upon .  Reference numbers in order to monitor solutions is essential.  Feedback channels should be established.

 

 

Communication

46. No Public Participation with regard to By Law enforcement

47. The KM website , www.kouga.gov.co.za  is not updated regularly enough and is outdated

48. No transparency in dealing with public matters

49. No timeous notice of meetings . Venues changed at last minute

50. No feedback on grievances and reporting on faults

51. Communication feedback by the spokesperson of the Municipality should be the truth and carefully considered. For example the KM has not apologized on the chaos in December as a result of the power failure, sewerage in public areas and appalling condition of water and the effect on the community and holidaymakers.

52.  Communication with residents should immediately be given attention and communication channels like newspapers, facebook, all established institutions etc  should be used to communicate continuously.  This lack of communication shall not be tolerated any longer

80. Where is the transparency and accountability ? The Kouga Municipality is not transparent in the management of functions and are not held responsible for poor service delivery  

81. Each town in Kouga has its own unique and different needs and attributes . These should be developed and maintained with the town’ s specific needs in mind and with local concerns in mind and involved for proper consideration  

82. Improper utilisation of available land assets . Selling off the same to pay ill earned debts . These should be developed and utilised and not just sold off .

95.  Prevention is better than cure . Preparation makes for good management .

96.  Kouga is unique and must be developed for Kouga .  Each town and region in Kouga is unique with its own needs and potential for development .  

97. Plans on how to fix and promote out beautiful Town should be made as soon as possible. Residents should be involved in this regard. How are we going to get the Tourists back who left as a result of the chaos?  They are our bread and butter

98. Procedures and processes for reporting of problems by residents are not in place at KM.  Reference numbers in order to monitor solutions is essential.  Feedback channels should be established.  Kouga employees and officials do not react on communication of residents, for example  e mails or calls .

99. Water, sewerage and Fires should be treated as emergency services.  Employees in this Departments should be specialists and well trained.  Sufficient employees should be employed for this important task.  Training of this staff should be monitored by the community. This is not the situation currently.

100. Inefficient development , use and management of KM buildings .

Many Kouga Municipality buildings , offices and meeting venues in serious disrepair and in need of maintenance for example the Old Country Club in Humansdorp and the Newton Hall .

On behalf of  The March for 100 Reasons


********************************************************************************


Residents of the Kouga Region that includes the towns of Jeffreys Bay, St Francis Bay, Humansdorp, Oyster Bay, Hankey, Patensie, Loerie and Thornhill will be marching from the Billabong Village to the Municipality to hand over a petition to the A/Mayor Councilor Stuurman.

THE MARCH FOR 100 REASONS
Jeffreys Bay received an incredible boost during the Winterfest of July 2014, confirming it as one of the top surfing spots in the world.
The JBay Winter Fest established itself as one of the country’s premier sporting and music events, attracting some 45,000 festival-goers over the 10-day period. Exhibiting an array of 13 sporting events the JBay Winter Fest attracted a field of national and international competitors.
In contrast to this, the build up to Dec14/Jan15 Holiday Season saw many facets of the infrastructure of our town not being maintained and service delivery spiralling downwards at an alarming rate.
As if the Eskom load shedding was not enough, with impromptu disconnections and no schedules available for JBay, other aspects affecting roads and bridge infra-structure then started showing signs of collapse.
Warnings were issued about the lack of maintenance to infrastructure by MP, Elza van Lingen, to no avail. The ANC-run Municipal Administration should get all the blame for the mall-administration of the resources available to the Kouga Region. Nothing was "unforeseen" or "unpredictable". One just needs to look at the current KM Budget to realise how financial resources are mismanaged.

Here is your chance to register your issue with the Kouga Municipality.
We as proud residents of this beautiful town that we all came to love so much, will stand up and be counted during this march to show the KM that we are serious and that we have had enough. We will also show the world that we will not sit back and accept this substandard service delivery that severely affects the tourism of this region.
Residents are therefore required to do the following:
1) Make an effort to participate in this very important march. We will no longer sit and talk, now is the time to walk the talk.
2) Put your banner together and display the topic that you feel serious about, as we plan for Local and National Media Coverage.
3) Email your reasons that you have issues with to be included in the 100 Reasons to km@jeffreysbayonline.co.za
4) Tell everyone you know about THE MARCH FOR 100 REASONS and do show your world that you care for JBay.

 EMAIL YOUR REASONS TO US AT km@jeffreysbayonline.co.za

The details of this event will be posted on the Jeffreys Bay Group at the address : https://www.facebook.com/groups/MyJeffriesBay/ and any comments or questions are welcomed.
