The Department of Local Government and Traditional Affairs is to conduct a two day Free Basic Service (FBS) workshops in all municipalities around the Province.
This initiative seeks to deal with the backlog on the status of Indigent Policies and Registers of the North West Municipalities.
These workshops is also part of the many initiatives and support programmes that the department wishes to roll out in ensuring that municipalities are strengthened in delivering free basic services to the communities at large.
Councillors and Municipal officials are expected to be inducted amongst other things, on the review and alignment of the Indigent policies to the National Policy, the registration and provision of the FBS to indigent households, as well as the Terms of Reference guiding the FBS Forum.
These workshops are envisaged to be held as follows:
Ngaka Modiri Molema and Dr Ruth Segomotsi Mompati Municipalities will attend on the 9th – 10th July 2012, while Dr Kenneth Kaunda and Bojanala Municipalities will attend from the 16th – 17th July 2012 at Christiana Protea Hotel : 8h30 – 16h30.
