City thanks its workers for their service

The Mayor & City Council (M&CC) yesterday publicly thanked workers from drainage, public and environmental services, public health department, nurses of the maternal and child welfare section, day care services, garbage collection and disposal and the city sluices for their tireless work in providing vital municipal services to residents of local communities.

According to a release, the M&CC said the sluice attendants in particular have to toil through the nights while sanitation and drainage workers have to ensure that the city’s waterways are kept clear and the garbage from homes are removed and properly disposed. Day care attendants spend time caring for the young ones while their parents work in the public and private sector.

The release said while it is true that the personnel section sometimes found it difficult to locate and recruit suitable individuals who are willing to do some of the jobs done by the council, the workers did their best.

It said that many of the employees carried out their duties in very harsh working conditions in the fields and offices. The council said it is has been calling for specific and specialised training programmes that would equip workers with the knowledge and skills to provide better services to citizens.
