Tackling neglect

Councillor Hermann Vorster believes everyone deserves to live in a clean, healthy and well maintained community. His proactive inspections ensure local parks, reserves and facilities remain in top condition. While he secures significant funding to clean up previously neglected areas, typically inherited from developers. He rolls up his own sleeves and invites the community to participate in regular clean ups, hard rubbish collections and working bees at local community and sporting clubs.
