The City of Ekurhuleni has extended the deadline for public submissions on the new draft water services by-law until the end of the month. This extension aims to cater to more members of the public and ensure they can offer their comments on the draft by-law before it comes into effect, as per Alberton Record.
The draft water services by-law combines two previously approved by-laws for water and wastewater and a new section for complying with current legislation and service requirements. The city is grateful for the communities and the business sector’s participation and communication in public consultation.
The Head of the city’s Department for Water and Sanitation, Thokozani Maseko, believes the extension will grant stakeholders ample time to check the by-law’s content and make informed comments to help shape the final version. Maseko appeals to more people to take an interest and participate in the process.
Every citizen is a user of water and sanitation services. Therefore, the city allows the public to submit their comments on the draft by-law. Citizens can submit comments at customer care centres to view the draft by-law. If you have written comments, post them to the head of the Department of Water and Sanitation, City of Ekurhuleni, 6th floor, Boksburg Civic Centre, corner Trichardt and Market streets. Alternatively, email your comments to [email protected].
