Hanover Park operations yield results​It was a rough day for several criminal minds in Hanover Park yesterday, as the City’s Metro Police Department made two significant arrests.<p>​It was a rough day for several criminal minds in Hanover Park yesterday, as the City’s Metro Police Department made two significant arrests.</p><p>Just before 21:30 last night, Metro Police officers on patrol spotted a man loitering in the area. He bolted when he saw the officers and they gave chase. During the pursuit, the suspect dropped what later turned out to be a firearm. The 33-year-old, who has apparent gang affiliations, was arrested and detained at Philippi SAPS. Metro Police officers also recovered a 9mm pistol with the serial number filed off along with four rounds of ammunition.</p><p>Just hours earlier, the City’s Metro Police Gang and Drug Task Team arrested a 41-year-old male for possession of high-grade dagga with an estimated value of R200 000. The suspect nearly collided with a Metro Police vehicle at a local garage and then tried to make a run for it. He was found with two packets of compressed dagga in his vehicle, and later, at his home, officers found two big bags and seven small bags of the same dagga. He was taken to Phillippi SAPS for processing.</p><p>Several other suspects were arrested for possession of drugs during operations and patrols in the last week. Many of the arrests were made as a result of tip-offs received from the public.</p><p>‘We have seen a steady increase in the number of tip-offs from the public that have resulted in good arrests. Our enforcement agencies’ jobs are made easier because of the willingness of some community members to put their hand up and participate in the fight against crime, and I commend these residents. While visible policing is a deterrent, visible policing with intent and driven by intelligence is far more effective. So I appeal to the public to continue assisting us in bringing criminals to book by blowing the whistle on illicit activities,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security; and Social Services, Alderman JP Smith.</p><p>On the roads, Metro Police officers arrested 51 motorists for driving under the influence of alcohol during various roadblocks. Their colleagues in the Traffic Service caught 61 motorists for the same offence. Some 17 arrests were also made for reckless and negligent driving charges and one motorist was found in possession of dagga.</p><p>‘Alcohol affects a person’s information processing skills and slows down the normal brain function. When drivers consume alcohol, it greatly increases the risk of collisions and harm to themselves, but also to other road users. It is therefore extremely disconcerting to find so many people still drinking and driving. What is even more concerning is just how drunk people are when they are caught. The blood alcohol readings are shocking at times and it beggars belief that people would even consider driving in that state, but more importantly that others would allow them to get behind the wheel,’ added Alderman Smith.</p><p><br><strong>End</strong><br></p>2018-08-12T22:00:00Z1
Cape Town reduces its carbon emissions by 4,1% as it ramps up climate change mitigation effortsThanks to the City’s climate action projects, less carbon dioxide has been released into the atmosphere, thus reducing our impact on global warming.<p>Today, I am pleased to announce that Cape Town has reduced its energy-related carbon emissions by 4,1% during the 2012 to 2015 period that was evaluated as part of the City’s latest State of the Environment Report. </p><p>Thanks to the City’s climate action projects, less carbon dioxide has been released into the atmosphere, thus reducing our impact on global warming.</p><p>This achievement is testament to the City’s efforts to be a leader among a network of global cities (the C40 Cities initiative) that is increasingly taking action to reduce their CO2 emissions and mitigate the effects of climate change.</p><p>Climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing the world and cities as the drivers of change are the key to tackling this global phenomenon to protect the wellbeing of our citizens and our environment. </p><p>As a member of the C40 Cities, Cape Town is committed to meeting the goals set in the 2015 Paris Agreement and we will continue working with cities across the world to reduce emissions and take hard decisions to adapt to the impacts of climate change such as low rainfall. </p><p>In 2017, Cape Town was ranked among the top five cities in the world out of 533 cities evaluated for demonstrating leadership in our climate disclosure. Through this disclosure we measure our energy and climate action data annually and report the findings to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP). Other cities in the top five include Mexico City, Paris, Sydney, and Vancouver.</p><p>In the City’s latest State of the Environment Report, we have looked at both Cape Town’s carbon emissions profile and its carbon footprint. Cape Town’s per capita energy-related carbon footprint was calculated to be 5.1 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent.</p><p>Cape Town currently measures its carbon footprint on an annual basis with in-depth updates carried out every five years (based on the Cape Town State of Energy Report series), and high-level updates every year in between. The City reports emissions according to the Global Protocol for Community Scale Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventories (GPC) to ensure consistency of methodology with global best practice as well as transparency of data and assumptions used.</p><p>The city’s reduction of carbon emissions is largely due to a significant reduction in electricity consumption. This is thanks in part to the City’s energy efficiency campaigns and the reduced usage by residents.</p><p>Some of the key efforts the City has implemented in the past year include:</p><ul><li><div style="text-align:left;">The City signed a R12,7 million grant agreement with the US Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) to fund a feasibility study on the use of natural gas. This may provide a greater mix of energy sources to offset the use of fossil fuels in producing electricity.</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">The City’s inaugural R1 billion green bond for climate action projects.</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">The City opened its landfill gas flaring project that harnesses methane gas and converts it to energy.</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">The City joined the C40 Reinventing Cities Programme, a worldwide competition calling on the private sector and communities to devise carbon neutral development solutions and designs for under-utilised publicly owned sites. Sites include Ottery, Mouquet Farm, the Grand Parade and the Civic Centre.</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">To date the City has replaced 820 km of high intensity discharge (HID) lamps with light-emitting diode (LED) technology. This results in an energy saving of about 40% when compared with traditional street lights.</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">Council approved the City’s revised Municipal Spatial Development Framework (MSDF) which aims to curb urban sprawl by focusing on inward growth and transit-oriented development accompanied by higher densities and land-use diversification. This will bring the majority of Capetonians closer to jobs, thus spending less energy on transport.</div></li></ul><p>Addressing apartheid spatial planning and creating integrated communities are some of the most important efforts the City is championing to help lower Cape Town’s carbon emissions. </p><p>Transport is the biggest contributor by sector of carbon emissions in the city. About 31% of all emissions come from the transport sector, followed by 29% from the commercial sector, 24% from residential and 12% from industrial sectors. Government accounts for 3% of carbon emissions and agriculture for 1%.<br>The City is constrained from lowering its carbon emissions even further because of Eskom’s reliance on fossil fuels to produce electricity. Electricity constitutes 64% of all carbon emissions because Eskom relies heavily on coal instead of renewable energy like solar and wind power to produce electricity. The City is in the process of taking Nersa and Eskom to court to fight for our right to buy cleaner energy directly from independent power producers.</p><p>Despite constraints, the City has implemented a small-scale embedded generation programme to allow residents and businesses to feed power generated from solar panels into the electricity grid. </p><p>While it is encouraging to see the City reducing its carbon emissions, much still needs to be done to achieve a 37% reduction in carbon emissions by 2040 or a 13% reduction by 2022, as set out by the City’s Energy2040 goal.</p><p>Together with residents and the private sector, we must now push harder to reduce our carbon emissions and amplify our contributions to protect the planet for future generations. </p><p><br><strong>End</strong> <br></p>2018-08-11T22:00:00Z1

Fine-free Week V2 is coming During National Book Week, patrons will have the opportunity to return all overdue library materials without facing any repercussions.<p>​‘Currently, there are more than 20 000 items including books, study guides and DVDs that are long overdue at the City’s libraries, valued at around R2 million. Staff are spending too many hours trying to track down patrons who checked out the items. This is time that could have been spent more productively on direct service delivery. Missing items also deprive others from enjoying them,’ said the City of Cape Town’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security; and Social Services, Alderman JP Smith.</p><p>During National Book Week, patrons will have the opportunity to return all overdue library materials without facing any repercussions.</p><p>‘Although this is still a few weeks away I want to encourage our patrons to start dusting off the books and DVDs they’ve been too embarrassed to return because of the time lapse. Your opportunity to take it back without a fine is coming. </p><p>‘During the last Fine-free Week earlier this year, libraries retrieved 6 067 items to the value of R283 000,’ said Alderman Smith.</p><p>In addition, lost library cards will be replaced at no cost to patrons. </p><p>‘National Book Week aims to promote reading, which is a powerful tool in fighting poverty. Literacy and reading are at the heart of education, personal growth and development. Even when a child is encouraged to read for pleasure, it impacts on his educational achievements,’ explained Alderman Smith.</p><p>Unreturned items are a huge challenge for the City’s libraries given budget constraints. Missing loan items also makes it difficult to ensure that patrons have access to relevant, adequate and up-to-date collections.</p><p>‘While just one item may seem insignificant, it could be that one study guide that a student needs to pass, or the one book that will propel a child into a love of studying. I want to urge patrons to return library stock so that everyone has the opportunity to experience the joy of what they have to offer,’ said Alderman Smith.</p><p>National Book Week aims to mitigate the findings of a 2006 study, which was repeated in 2016, that shows a disturbing increase in the number of households in South Africa that do not own a single leisure reading book – up from 51% in 2006 to 58% in 2016. In addition, only 14% of the country’s population are committed readers.</p><p><br><strong>End</strong><br></p>2018-08-09T22:00:00Z1
