BURGERSFORT-40 SMMES business owners in Fetakgomo Tubatse Municipality are very much excited after they were awarded municipal contracts for the maintenance of access roads in various wards in the Municipality in the second quarter of the 2017/18 financial year.
Most of the contractors who benefited from the programme were on CIDB grade 01 and 02 CE and on completion they may move a grade higher. One of the contractors who benefited indicated that he thanks the municipality for capacitating them unlike in the previous years when projects were only given to big construction companies. More contractors are likely to benefit in future when additional resources are available.
To further enhance the empowerment initiatives the Municipality has invited emerging contractors to register in the panel of contractors for the following categories:
- General building
- Electrical services
- Transport services
- Security services
- Waste management
- Cleaning services
