MIDVAAL LAUNCHES VIRTUAL AGENT AUTOMATION TO IMPROVE SERVICE DELIVERY

Midvaal Local Municipality has launched a 24-hour, 7-day automated virtual agent to enhance service delivery functions and provide improved services.

Through this initiative, residents will have access to features such as viewing account statements, lodging complaints, and obtaining service delivery schedules and notices.

The virtual agent will have additional resident-centric services, like payment of fines and accounts. The payment functionality will become available towards the latter part of March 2024.

The municipality is committed to improving the resident experience, increasing accessibility, and promoting service excellence.

The automated virtual agent compliments the existing customer complaints centre, which currently operates from 06:00 to 22:0 on a daily basis.

The virtual agent is accessible from the WhatsApp platform via 081 876 0408.

While the virtual agent boasts various capabilities, as of now, it does not provide the service of alerting emergency services in case of such incidents. Therefore, emergencies should continue to be reported directly to the Fire Department via 016 360 7500 / 016 340 5911.

The new initiative paves the way for access to seamless services in a way that is convenient to residents, communities and businesses, heralding a new age for service delivery in Southern Gauteng.

“We remain steadfast in our commitment to solving challenges through innovation and creativity. This is to ensure that we enhance the lives of our people and further grow Midvaal into an island of Excellence,” says Executive Mayor, Peter Teixeira.

ISSUED ON BEHALF OF THE OFFICE OF THE OFFICE OF THE MAYOR:

Yours in Service Excellence.

Riding Towards Glory: Cycling South Africa Gears Up for 2024 National Championships in Midvaal

Riding Towards Glory: Cycling South Africa Gears Up for 2024 National Championships in Midvaal

PEDALING EXCELLENCE:
Cycling South Africa and Midvaal Municipality are delighted to announce the progressing preparations for the forthcoming National Road, Criterium, and Time Trial Championships to be hosted in the Midvaal municipal area. The prestigious National Championships are scheduled to take place in Midvaal, Gauteng, from 1— 4 February 2024.

Cycling SA wishes to provide its members with an update on the route/s development. While not yet finalized, substantial and successful progress has been made during the past week. The road race route is anticipated to feature a compelling combination of the John Bosco loop, Suikerbosrand Nature Reserve with a straight approach to the finish line.

Additionally, representatives from Cycling SA recently convened with key stakeholders from the Midvaal Municipality, including the Head of Traffic and a panel of department heads, to deliberate on the event. Although details are not conclusively settled, preliminary approval has been granted. A formal presentation is scheduled for 8 January 2024, during which Cycling SA will present the event to the same panel for final consideration.

After a thorough route inspection was conducted with the Head of Tourism at Suikerbosrand, the team is pleased to report their approval for incorporating Suikerbosrand into most of the championship routes. While currently a positive indication, formal approval from Regional Parks Management is still pending.

The Individual Time Trials will start and finish at the Race Village, Café de Cirque, popularly known as “the Circus”. Various routes and distances will also be finalised pending approval following the presentation on the 8th of January next year.

The Criterium is set to unfold in the heart of Meyerton, promising a spectator-friendly experience. Cycling South Africa eagerly anticipates the successful culmination of these discussions and looks forward to delivering a world-class championship event for participants and spectators alike.

Registration for the National Championship is currently open at www.cyclingsa-events.co.za.

Ends.
