Executive Mayor Conrad Poole has offered his hearty congratulations to the 2019 Matric class in Drakenstein, the Western Cape and indeed the entire country. He praised the matrics for the sacrifices they made to ensure they achieved excellent results in their subjects. A highlight of the day was congratulating South Africa's top student, Madelein Dippenaar, who attended Paarl Gimnasium. Madelein secured the top spot with an average of 96.9%.

Executive Mayor Poole commended M...adelein on her contribution to Drakensteins ever growing reputation as a city of excellence and a city that cares for its youth. In this regard, Drakenstein spent over R1 million on 75 bursaries in the last financial year. This included the six bursaries allocated to rural development.

Executive Mayor Poole wishes all the matrics well as they embark on the next chapter of their lives.

Public not required to wear protective clothing at Wellington landfill site

Please note that a notice for members of the public to wear protective clothing (reflector jackets and safety shoes) when bringing refuse to the Wellington landfill site, has been displayed in error and without the approval of Drakenstein Municipality. This notice only applies to official visits and has since been removed.

The Municipality encourages members of the public to use the Wellington landfi...ll site to legally dispose of refuse. We also urge anyone who spots an illegal dumping perpetrator, to take a picture of him or her and their vehicle's registration number, or write down the details and send these to drakenstein@whistleblowing.co.za, or you can call our Reporting Hotline Number: 0800 555 337.

The Municipality is in the process of developing a bylaw which will enable it to confiscate these vehicles.

Whistleblowers who provide information leading to the successful criminal prosecution of any person who committed a criminal act against Drakenstein Municipality, qualify to be rewarded between R20 000 and R200 000. Crimes may be reported anonymously; however, if whistleblowers want to be considered for rewards, their contact details will be required.
