City refreshes Kraaifontein Civic Centre and more<p>​‘It is very important that when residents visit a municipal facility they are entering a safe, welcoming, and neat environment that is operating efficiently. The physical environment is very much an indication of the level of professionalism a resident should expect at these facilities. The City’s Corporate Services Directorate initiated the Visible Improvement Programme (VIP) for enhancements of municipal buildings across the city. Everything, from our waiting areas to our cashier tellers, the front gardens and landscaping, is being looked at. Our main objective is to refresh the customer service centres so that our residents can see and feel they are entering a building where we are hard at work to serve them,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Corporate Services, Alderman Theresa Uys.<br></p><div>The Kraaifontein Civic Centre on Brighton Road in Kraaifontein is one of the City’s administrative facilities that houses departments and facilities such as the:</div><div><br></div><div>•        Finance Department: Debtors and Cash & Motor Vehicle Registration</div><div>•        Record Management</div><div>•        Economic Growth</div><div>•        Environmental and Heritage Management</div><div>•        Facilities Management </div><div>•        Development Management </div><div>•        Environmental Management Department</div><div>•        Water and Sanitation</div><div>•        Water Reticulation </div><div>•        Sub Council 2</div><div>•        Informal Settlements</div><div>•        Information and Technology</div><div>•        Urban Management (Roads and Transport)</div><div><br></div><div>The refurbishment work undertaken at the Kraaifontein Civic centres includes the improvement of the garden and landscaped area, restoration of the fountain and proper poster management.
