The Main Municipal Building is closed to the public today 19 August, following damage to the roof and electrical wiring due to weather.
The public to please note this includes THE CASHIER HALL on the ground floor which will not open today. Please consider online payments where possible.
Several Roads have been affected by flooding: Hope Street in CBD, Beach Road use left lane, Section of Artillery Road, Delville Park flooded.
Motorists and other road users must take extreme care in rainy weather and look out for areas that may be partially flooded. Use alternative routes where possible.
The removal of refuse will go ahead today but unfortunately will be delayed due to heavy rainfall. The cleansing team will do everything possible to remove the refuse in scheduled areas as well in the rural areas. Those areas which had flooding, where trucks struggle to reach, will be rescheduled for tomorrow or Saturday depending on the weather conditions. We ask the public to be patient and leave their refuse outside for pick up. The public cannot not leave their refuse outside and phone afterwards for pick up when the truck has already passed through their area. We will keep the public informed of rescheduling.
If you live in these areas, your refuse will be removed today:
