SALGA calls for practical measures to make sure that municipalities deliver on their infrastructure projects


Posted: 14 June 2018


SALGA hosted a successful three-day Municipal Innovative Infrastructure Financing Conference on Wednesday, 13 June at the Emperors Palace in Kempton Park, Johannesburg.

More than 400 representatives from municipalities, industry experts and key stakeholders in local government infrastructure financing convened to explore, deliberate and share ideas on innovative infrastructure funding mechanisms for South African municipalities.

Addressing delegates on the role of municipalities in catalysing the economy through infrastructure investment, SALGA President Councillor Parks Tau said the conference came at a time when local government is witnessing realities of limited financial resources amidst increased infrastructure requirements both globally and nationally.

“It is indeed a time when we should all be acknowledging that infrastructure projects have a great role to play in economic rejuvenation, job creation and service delivery. It is a time when we all have to deliberate on innovative solutions to the pressing concerns of sustainable municipal financing, “said Cllr Tau.

Cllr Tau said SALGA is committed to supporting municipalities in finding sustainable ways to meet their social, economic and financial needs.

“SALGA cannot do this alone, we need the private sector. More importantly, government needs to review its commitments and expected role in accordance with Section 156 of the Constitution to support local government in all aspects of their service authority functions,” he said.

Cllr Tau said SALGA has acknowledged the important roles to be provided in respect of leadership, facilitating discussions, unlocking challenges and to drive the change to be identified during this year’s Municipal Innovative Infrastructure Financing Conference .

"It is our belief that a fully functional and capable local government is one that is able to ensure effective service delivery and improve the quality of life of citizens. Without sustainable revenue, innovative business models that attract demand and uptake, this will not be feasible’,” he concluded.
