Overstrand Welcomes New Council with Orientation Programme

As the dust came to rest after the recent hotly contested municipal elections, the first order of business for the newly elected councillors was to undergo an Orientation Programme that includes a Compulsory Workshop on Wednesday, 10 August 2016 followed by Council’s Inauguration Meeting set for Friday, 12 August 2016.

Municipal Manager, Coenie Groenewald, has advised  that the aim of the workshop is for Councillors to familiarise themselves with the Councillors’ Code of Conduct, Council’s Rules of Order for Internal Arrangements and specific legislation.  The gathering will also allow Councillors to work through the process and procedures regarding the election of Ward Committees (15 – 18 August 2016).  Moreover, Councillors will also focus on the Integrated Development Plan process and related matters.

At the Inauguration Meeting, the speaker, mayor, deputy mayor and whip will be announced.
