Stellenbosch Municipality announced in early December 2016 that it had achieved another clean audit for its 2015/2016 financials.
A clean audit means that the financial statements are all in order with no issues on the predetermined objectives, no problems with non-compliance to key legislation or any significant deficiencies in the internal controls of the municipality.
Mayor Gesie van Deventer said: “There is always room for improvement, and I promise that my team and I will uphold this standard of clean and transparent government and improve wherever possible. I am committed to clean financial management, zero tolerance for corruption, and utilising the money of the tax payer first and foremost for improved service delivery in order to create a municipal environment that creates opportunities for all residents.”
The mayor also thanked the Chief Financial Officer, Marius Wüst, and the other officials who work to ensure that the municipality complies with the prescribed legislation at all times.
