Getting to know Shane Maas

My priorities:

  • Electricity: I will continue to fight the vandalism of the Mirage Substation which feeds electricity to Ward 42. The City has already contracted a security company for 24-hour surveillance.
  • Roads: Some major roads require complete resurfacing and not just patching of potholes. I will advocate for road re-tarring, particularly in Waterkloof where it is most apparent.
  • Service delivery: Our ward has old and unreliable infrastructure that needs serious attention. I will prioritize that new electricity and water reticulation infrastructure form part of the Integrated Development Plan (IDP) budget.
  • Hijacked Properties: I will engage with property owners whose homes are hijacked to take legal steps in correcting the situation. If this is not successful, the City’s Policy and By-Laws will be enacted to assist property owners in obtaining the necessary interdicts.
