MUNICIPALITY KEEPS GREEN IMAGE

The Mossel Bay Municipality again kicked dust in the eyes of the fifteen other Western Cape local municipalities, which it competed with in the annual Greenest Municipality competition, by winning three of the six categories of the competition and also winning two special awards. 
The Municipality also finished second overall and won prize money of R70 000 in doing so.
Mossel Bay was adjudged the winner in the categories of climate change response, water management and conservation and air quality management.
It received an award for best progress in the category for climate change response and a certificate of outstanding achievement for an innovation project. The latter was for the designing and building of  a portable remote-controlled tripping and closing device for circuit  breakers by three electricians of the Municipality. It resulted in a saving of R1,5 million.

The Executive Mayor, Alderlady Marie Ferreira, said she was proud of the Municipality’s latest achievements.
“It has been my and my Council’s vision that Mossel Bay should be a leader in the field of environmental and climate change management and these achievements show that we are succeeding. It of course requires hard work and ingenuity, and I would like to thank the municipal manager, Dr Michele Gratz, and her personnel for their continued hard work and dedication,” said Alderlady Ferreira.
Sixteen of the 24 local municipalities in the Western Cape took part in the  competition.
Hessequa Municipality was the overall winner after Mossel Bay was the overall winner of the competition in 2013 and again in 2014.
