Oudtshoorn Municipality on course to recover

In early March this year the provincial cabinet has endorsed the decision to place the Oudtshoorn municipality under the administration.

“The province is going to appoint an administrator that is going to assist that municipality for a period of six months, which is expiring on the 18 September 2007,” says spokesperson for Local Government and Housing Vusi Tshose.

As part of those responsibilities, the administrator Louis Scheepers, will be responsible for all the decisions made regarding the municipality.

“That simply means that the councillors in the forms of mayors and other councillors, as well as the administration of the municipalities, did not have any responsibility in terms of decision making, but supporting the administrator,” says Tshose.

All decision making powers will be given back to the council as well as the administration, but under the watchful eye of somebody that the province will nominate to go and assist the municipality for the next six months to come.
