City of Cape Town to spend over R40m on library maintenance, upgrades

The City of Cape Town on Wednesday said it was planning to spend more than R40 million this financial year on library maintenance and upgrades across the city.

In a statement, the City said its Library and Information Services (LIS) plans to spend more than R43 million on library upgrades, the completion of the Dunoon library, new Wi-Fi connections, services and the acquisition of reading materials.

LIS will spend just under R18,5 million on books, magazines, newspapers and e-resources subscriptions to ensure that the City’s libraries have appealing reading materials to engage all library patrons. Other City libraries will receive R7,7 million for proactive maintenance.

“In a technological and digital age, the City is often asked why it spends money on upgrading and maintaining these spaces. Libraries have always been at the heart of the communities they serve and are accessible and safe spaces, providing access to a huge repository of information and knowledge,” said the City of Cape Town’s mayoral committee member for safety and security, JP Smith.

Motivated Property Sellers

Motivated Property Sellers

There is no one way to sell a property because no property and seller are alike!  It is a fundamental flaw in the marketing offered by most real estate companies that the same essential package is offered to most sellers.  Little regard is made for the difference in seller’s circumstances and motivation or the area or the property!  It’s a one size fits all or some extra bells and whistles for the more expensive homes.

Well, this is not the case with Chas Everitt Cape Town South.  Over the last few years, we developed a tried and tested system that is centred around the strategically managed release of a property into the market with its own phased approach designed to stimulate maximum interest and response from qualified buyers.

Does this sound interesting to you as a seller?  If you would like to know how you can secure these benefits, you will appreciate we cannot detail this here but if you contact the Chas Everitt Cape Town South area specialist who manages your area they will gladly explain how our management of the marketing process is fundamentally different to what you have heard before.
