PRESS RELEASE - OVERBERG DISTRICT MUNICIPALITY
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DATE: 5 December 2022
CONFERMENT OF ALDERMANSHIP AND OTHER ACHIEVEMENTS CELEBRATED
Today, during the Overberg District Municipal Council’s last ordinary meeting for the year, the Executive Mayor Ald Sakkie Franken and Municipal Manager Mr Richard Bosman, bestowed the title and status of Aldermanship upon two councillors.
The title “Alderman” is a historical title derived from the Anglo-Saxon position of ealdorman, literally meaning ‘elder man’.
The title is thus a fitting one to be bestowed upon councillors who, amongst other criteria, have served on one or more local government bodies within the Republic of South Africa over the course of several years.
The honorary title is conferred once a year as and when councillors reach the required milestone. They retain the title even after they leave public office.
Aldermanship was conferred to Cllr Ronald Brinkhuys and Cllr Roland Theo Olivier.
Also during the Council meeting, the Council awarded a certificate of excellence to Mr Nigel Klaasen who recently received the award for Western Cape Prestige Agri-Worker of the Year 2022.
Mr Klaasen, a junior production manager on the farm Fruitways Glen Elgin in Elgin, was announced as the 2022 Western Cape Prestige Agri-Awards winner at the annual gala dinner held on Saturday, 5 November 2022, at the Grandwest Complex in Goodwood.
ODM Executive Mayor Sakkie Franken expressed his happiness that this year’s winner of the prestigious award is from the Overberg region. “As the Overberg District Municipal Council, we are proud of the achievement Mr Klaasen has attained, which is proof of his hard work and commitment to agriculture in the region.”
Council also presented certificates in recognition of long service to the municipality for 30 years or more to officials who have reached these milestones.
Long Service Certificates are awarded to employees as a gesture of appreciation for services rendered in recognition of the employee’s length of service.
The Executive Mayor thanked the recipients for their continuous and dedicated service to the municipality. “Thank you for being such valuable members of our workforce. We appreciate your commitment to the municipality over the years.”
