Major developments planned for Keetmans

Private hospital on the cards

17 December 2018 | Plaaslik
KEETMANSHOOP - The Keetmanshoop Electricity Business Unit (KEBU) is replacing street and mast lights in all residential areas at the town.

The public relations officer of the Keetmanshoop municipality, Dawn Kruger, said the unit is also replacing fluorescent fittings in the central business area for beautification and security purposes.

So far, lights have been replaced at all main entrance roads to the town and the main entrance road to Krönlein and Tseiblaagte. Mast lighting at identified areas in Tseiblaagte and the road to the governor’s office, known as First Avenue, has also been replaced.

The project is set to be completed by June 2019 and will cost an estimated N$3.7 million

“KEBU also replaced the old traffic light at the intersection between Noordhoek and Westdene and plans are underway to install a traffic light at the Woerman Brock intersection,” she said.

KEBU is an independently run unit of the municipality and operates in partnership with the Erongo Regional Electricity Distributor.

Erven

Kruger further explained that the council has approved the sale of four erven at the southern town measuring 7 230 square metres and valued at over N$1 million.

For the 2018/19 financial year, the municipality is expected to service 110 erven.

Earlier in her acceptance speech last week as Keetmanshoop mayor, Gaudentia Kröhne, said the council has granted an environmental clearance certificate for a new logistics park, a new municipal dump site and a new cemetery.

“A feedlot and lucerne irrigation scheme and a private hospital for one of the practicing doctors in town has also been approved,” she noted.

The municipality in addition plans to formalise the existing informal settlements at the town, starting with Extension Four, also known as Iileni.

“The municipality will sell these erven to those currently occupying the erven on condition that the municipal accounts for services are up to date. We plan to start early next year,” Kröhne said. – Nampa
