I compose an open letter to you because your claim, once upon a time at a Ward 10 meeting, that you answer all queries and your door is open, was a fiction (not your first) i.e. you have never responded to me.
Despite the many millions that have been spent on repairing or bandaiding the Knysna Estuary pollution problem, the Knysna Municipality is still not getting the basics done.
I have regularly walked or cycled along the Costa Sarda walkway (pavement that runs along the water from Thesen Islands to George Rex Drive). Several times, over the past 6 months, i’ve encountered a gaggle of female, municipal workers who seem more intent on walking slowly and chatting than cleaning. In fact, i’ve never seen them pick up anything.
Below are pictures of tires and a toilet cistern that i have witnessed for more than 6 months now. Initially, i treated this as a small test of the Knysna Municipality’s efficiency/competency but with so much time having passed, and with the fear that more tires will sink into invisibility beneath the bed of the Knysna Estuary, i thought it best to contact you.
Why has there been no supervision of the cleaners? Who is the head of the responsible department? Does he/she not walk at least twice a year along major routes such as Costa Sarda?
