Service delivery issues across the Sandton wards pose a daunting challenge.
Ward 104 councillor, Mike Wood said things are generally going well in the ward, however, they are faced with the usual service delivery issues due to aged infrastructure.
Wood identified that the condition of certain sections of the roads and the electricity supply to certain sections in the ward remain a challenge. “Homeless folk remain a huge challenge in the ward and crime in parts of the ward have become an issue,” said Wood.
Some highlights over the past few months are:
The Johannesburg Roads Agency has started with road resurfacing in parts of the ward
There have been water upgrades in parts of Bryanston Ext 3 which are most welcome.
“The monthly mayoral clean-up is well supported in the ward with active community involvement,” he explained.
Wood said he has a number of very active residents’ associations in his ward and this assists him in sorting out issues and ensuring service delivery.
“A pleasing aspect is the fact that a number of younger folk are getting involved in the residents’ associations.”
