GWERU–City Council has acquired three brand new Holland tractors in an effort to improve service delivery.
The tractors valued at a total cost of US$ 93 000 were commissioned this week after being delivered from Duly’s Motors.
Confirming the development, Gweru Council Public Relations Officer Vimbai Chingwaramusee said the new tractors were going to enhance efficient service delivery in the city.
“The procurement of the tractors is anchored on building a sustainable, prosperous city of choice by year 2030.
“Three tractors were delivered to us today by Duly’s Motors and as a local authority, we are very much happy about this development because these tractors are going to be dedicated towards ensuring quality service delivery to our valued clients, residents and stakeholders.
“We bought these tractors at a total cost of US$ 93 000. Two of the tractors are going to be used in the engineering services department and the other tractor is going to be a slasher used by the department of housing and community services for grass cutting on road sides,” said Chingwaramusee.
She further highlighted that the new fleet was going to easy transport challenges council has been experiencing.
“Gone are the days when the local authority used to cry foul over inadequate transport to ferry equipment and employees to attend to blockages and burst pipes. However council service vehicles will be localized in the residential areas for quick and fast service provision.
“We therefore urge our valued residents to play their part by paying their bills for smooth running of the local authority and improved service delivery,” she added.
