As the Speaker I am the Chairperson of the Overberg District Council.
In terms of legislation I will make sure that:
The Speaker as the Chairperson of the Municipal Council is responsible for ensuring that discussions and debates within the Council are conducted in a fair and impartial manner. This is done by ensuring that the Rules and Orders Policy of the Municipality is properly applied during the proceedings of Council. The Rules and Orders Committee, chaired by the Speaker, is responsible for the review of the policy in order to ensure consistency and accuracy of the Council deliberations. The resolutions taken by the Municipal Council have to be implementable and the Speaker has to ensure that the policy guidance is always adhered to in capturing and ultimate implementation of council resolutions.
