Leadership

Overview

There are two spheres of governance within Overberg District Municipality: Council, which is political in nature and representative of the people who have elected them; and the Administration, who are the executors of decisions taken by Council.

Political and Administrative Governance

Section 151(3) of the Consitution states that the Council of a municipality has the right to govern, on its own initiative, the local goverment affairs of the local community.

Council, as political governance, performs both legislative and executive functions and focuses on decision-making to formulate policy and to play an oversight and participatory role.

The Municipal Manager heads the administration and primarily serves as chief custodian of service delivery and implementation of political priorities.
