Oudtshoorn, 12 December 2016 – Oudtshoorn Municipality has received first 20 of the 40 brand new vehicles that have been leased to roll out services faster and efficiently. The Executive Mayor, Aldm Colan Sylvester and some members of the Mayoral Committee visited the fleet management unit to receive the vehicles on Thursday, 8 December 2016.
“Receipt of these vehicles can only be good news for the community of the Greater Oudtshoorn since vehicles or transport is an essential tool of service delivery in a Municipality,” said Mayor Sylvester on receipt of the vehicles.
“We are currently bolstering our fleet management controls to prevent misuse of state’s vehicles by officials; we urge the public to help us manage these vehicles by reporting any misuse to the Municipality.”
