What is the municipality's solution?
It is clear that the Marlboro South Land Owners are manufacturers, builders, businessmen and employers. They are the resource that will contribute to a better Johannesburg. The City Council appreciates such evolution.
The city council does its utmost and tries to keep the constitutional duties to "respect those who have worked to build and develop the country", "lay the foundations for a democratic and open society in which government is based on the will of the people and every citizen is equally protected by law"; and "improve the quality of life of all citizens and free the potential of each person".
The municipality is adding two schools, supports and carries out the national "Litter Free Gauteng Campaign", organizes better policing to ensure greater levels of overall safety.
