Service delivery to be strengthened by addition of new vehicles to City fleet

The replacement of vehicles in the City Fleet will assist to strengthen the City’s service delivery efforts.

A report outlining the purchasing of new vehicles for the City was tabled at a Full Council meeting today, 31 January.

The report stated that the replacement of vehicles is critical to provide efficiency in service delivery, reduction in repairs and maintenance costs, reduction in fuel consumption, hiring costs as well as the additional vehicles assisting with safety and security.

Vehicles will be replaced in the City Fleet which will cover services required for the provision of water, cleansing and solid waste, electricity, fire and emergency services and small plant operators among others.

This will result in R190.4 million being identified in the 2017/18 financial year for the replacement of critical vehicle requirements to achieve efficiency in the provision of service delivery to local communities.

Chairperson of the Human Settlements and Infrastructure Committee Councillor Mondli Mthembu said it was important to replace vehicles as it affects service delivery.

He said the report initially requested funding for three years, which was amended to one year so that the Executive Committee could review the matter annually.
