Once again both our sewerage trucks are out of action. This is becoming the norm and is totally unacceptable. Currently there is a backlog of three days and council has managed to obtain two vehicles, one from Port Elizabeth and the other one from Jeffreys Bay.
Your Residents Association has written to the Municipal Manager and the acting Director for Infrastructure regarding this issue, see attached letter.
Both these vehicles should be replaced, not only because they are constantly breaking down but also because they are a hazard on our roads. At this stage in time we do not know how long we will have the use of the two loan vehicles.

With the recent rains the state of our roads have deteriorated further and more and more potholes are appearing. The Residents Association would like to appeal to all drivers, particularly those in the construction business, to stick to the speed limits and be aware that overtaking should be kept to an absolute minimum.
Drivers must clearly understand that, due to the potholes, vehicles have to sometimes move into the middle of the road to avoid these potholes which makes overtaking even more dangerous. This problem is further compounded by the fact that there are many loose stones on the road which, by overtaking, could cause damage to windscreens etc. The traffic authorities have already been advised of residents’ concerns regarding this matter.

If you could choose any special place in the world to live, then surely St. Francis Bay would feature high on your list. In order to preserve our village and its amenities, it is critical to have an Organization that works with the Local Authorities to preserve our Environment and to Maintain & Improve our facilities. The St. Francis Bay Residents Association fulfils this role.
The St. Francis Bay Residents Association consists of Portfolios on The Beach, Municipal Services, Canals, Environmental, Land-Use, Nuclear, Tourism, Fire Protection, Social Services, Finance, Security, Valuations and Secretarial & Communication.
Regular emails are sent out to all Members keeping them informed about matters in the village and alerting them to issues that need their attention. The SFB Residents constantly interact with the Municipality in order to improve service delivery and act on behalf of residents where required.
