Municipality Structure

Overview

Section 2(b) of the Municipal Systems Act, Act 117 of 1998 provides that a municipality comprises its political structures, administration and community.

POLITICAL STRUCTURES

Cape Agulhas Municipality is established in terms of Section 12 of the Local Government Municipal Structures Act, Act 117 of 1998 (Municipal Structures Act), as a Municipality with a Mayoral Executive System combined with a Ward Participatory System. The Municipality has the following political structures:

 

MUNICIPAL COUNCIL

The Municipal Council comprises nine Councillors, five of whom are Ward Councillors and four of whom are Proportional Representation (PR) Councillors.  The Municipal Council is led by an ANC / Independent coalition.

 

OFFICE OF THE SPEAKER

The Speaker is the Chairperson of the Municipal Council and performs his functions in terms of a framework of powers assigned by legislation and powers delegated by the Municipal Council in terms of the Municipal Systems Act.

 

THE EXECUTIVE MAYOR AND EXECUTIVE MAYORAL COMMITTEE

The Executive Mayor is at the centre of the governance system and is responsible for providing political and strategic leadership. Executive power is vested in the Executive Mayor, in accordance with a framework of powers assigned by legislation as well as powers delegated by the Municipal Council in terms of Section 59 of the Municipal Systems Act. In order to maximise operational efficiency, the Municipal Council has delegated all powers except those which it is may not delegate by law to the Executive Mayor. The Executive Mayoral Committee is chaired by the Executive Mayor and comprises the Deputy Mayor and one full time Councillor.

 

PORTFOLIO COMMITTEES

Portfolio Committees are appointed in terms of section 80 of the Municipal Structures Act. There are three Portfolio Committees, namely a Public Works, Corporate Services and Masakhane Committees.  Portfolio Committee are chaired by the Deputy Mayor, and the members of the Executive Mayoral Committee.

 

THE ADMINISTRATION

The Cape Agulhas Municipality currently has an Office of the Municipal Manager and five Directorates, although this will be reducing to four on 1 July 2016 when the Electro-Technical Directorate and Technical Directorates combine.

 

COMMUNITY AND COMMUNITY STRUCTURES

The Constitution requires the Municipality to encourage the participation of community members and community organisations in the matters of local government. The Community play an integral role in municipal processes and decision making and our challenge is to find the most effective method of implementing two way communication and interaction. The Municipality’s principle structures are Ward and the Cape Agulhas Advisory Forum (CAMAF)

 

WARD COMMITTEES

Ward Committees are appointed in terms Sections 72 -78 of the Municipal Structures Act. They are the communication channel between the Municipality and the Community. Although they are not political structures, they are coupled to the term of office of the Municipal Council.  The ward committees are chaired by the ward councillor

 

CAPE AGULHAS ADVISORY FORUM (CAMAF)

CAMAF is an integrated structure for the whole Municipal Area which is chaired by the Executive Mayor and which include stakeholders from business, government, civil society and organised labour sectors.
