Stellenbosch Municipality

IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR VEHICLE OWNERS

Stellenbosch Municipality would like to advise vehicle owners that renewal notices for vehicle licences will not be sent via the South African Post Office while the National Department of Transport (NDOT) is in the process of transferring the electronic National Traffic Information System (eNaTIS) to the Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC).

eNaTIS is currently managed centrally at NDOT, including the issuing of motor vehicle licence renewal notices. This transaction will directly affect the thousands of motorists within our Municipal area who are required to renew their vehicle licence discs by the end of December 2016, and possibly by 31 January 2017.

Vehicle Owners are urged to be pro-active by checking their licence disc expiry date, and ensuring that they apply on time to avoid penalties. During this period the Western Cape Department of Transport and Public Works will assist the affected motorists during this period.

Affected motorists can visit our Motor Vehicle Registering Authority with their South African identity document and proof of address (In Circumstances the postal address differ to physical address proof of both is required). Affected motorists can contact the Western Cape Department of Transport and Public Works at Provincial Service Centre to find out the amount they owe through one of the following service channels:

BELANGRIKE KENNIS GEWING VIR VOERTUIG EIENAARS

Stellenbosch Munisipaliteit wil graag onder u aandag bring dat die hernuwings kennisgewings vir die hernu van voertuig lisensies nie via die Suid Afrikaanse Pos Dienste uit gestuur gaan word nie terwyl die Nationale Departement van Vervoer  in die proses is om die Elektroniese Nationale Verkeers Informasie Stelsel (eNATIS) elektronies oor te dra na die Pad Verkeer Bestuurende Korporasie.

Hierdie transaksie sal direk ‘n effek op duisende motorriste binne ons Munisipaliteits area inhou wat hulle lisensies einde Desember 2016 en dalk teen einde Januarie 2017 moet hernu.

Voertuig einenaars word versoek om ten alle tye hulle voertuig lisensies se verval datums na te gaan en betyds aansoek te doen vir hernu van lisensies om ekstra onkostes (boetes) te vermy. Die Wes Kaapse Departement van Vervoer en Publieke werke sal die betrokke motorriste gedurende die tydperk bystaan.

Die betrokke motorriste kan die Wes Kaapse Departement van Vervoer en Publieke Werke kontak om die bedrag te bepaal vir die hernu van voertuig lisensies deur die volgende kanale:

REFUSE COLLECTION DURING THE FESTIVE SEASON

Dear Resident

Normal waste collection will take place over the festive season, including public holidays.

Please Note: Only refuse placed inside the Municipal bin marked “WC024” will be removed. Should additional waste be anticipated an application for additional bins must be made. No extra black bags will be removed. The waste collection service commences at 07:15, and all bins must be placed on the sidewalk by 07:00 on the morning of your waste collection day.

Residents must not be intimidated into giving 'Christmas boxes/ gifts or donations' to Solid Waste staff.

Residents are advised that the Stellenbosch Municipality has a policy that strictly forbids Solid Waste collection personnel and other service personnel from soliciting residents for 'Christmas boxes' and 'donations'. Collection staff are remunerated with a 13th cheque at the end of November annually, and there is therefore no obligation from members of the public further to give “Christmas boxes/ gifts or donations”.

It would be appreciated if residents could report any incidents of intimidation by Municipal staff to (021) 808 8224 during office hours, 08:00 - 16:30. In addition, the date, time and place and vehicle registration number should also be provided in order that the transgressors can be identified.

Such reports will be investigated immediately and, where residents are willing to testify, the Municipality will take the necessary disciplinary action.

 

Ek wens almal in die groter Stellenbosch area vrede en vreugde toe gedurende die Feesseisoen en ‘n Nuwe Jaar gevul met blydskap en sukses.

Wishing everybody in the greater Stellenbosch area peace and joy over this Festive Season and a New Year filled with joy and success.

BURGEMEESTER / MAYOR

As an early Christmas present, it is my honour to announce that the Stellenbosch Municipality has achieved its second consecutive clean audit! A clean audit means that the financial statements are all in order with no issues on the predetermined objectives, no problems with non-compliance to key legislation or any significant deficiencies in the internal controls of the Municipality.

There is always room for improvement, and I promise that my team and I will uphold this standard of clean and transparent government and improve wherever possible. I am committed to clean financial management, zero tolerance for corruption, and utilising the money of the tax payer first and foremost for improved service delivery in order to create a municipal environment that creates opportunities for all residents.

I want to thank the Chief Financial Officer and all the officials who have worked tirelessly to make sure that we comply with the prescribed legislation at all times. You make a difference to the lives of our residence by making sure their funds are correctly spent.

Die Uitvoerende Burgemeester van die Groter Stellenbosch nooi u om u piekniekmandjie saam te bring na die aanskakeling van Stellenbosch se kersliggies.

The Executive Mayor of the Greater Stellenbosch invites you to bring your picnic basket along and experience the switching on of Stellenbosch’s Christmas lights.
