​Overgrown grass will be cut each Tuesday over the next eight weeks, when all City Parks staff in Region E will be devoted to the task.
A CAMPAIGN that will speed up the cutting of overgrown grass in Region E by City Parks workers began this week in Sandringham.

Called Blitz Tuesdays, over the next eight weeks staff members in the region will dedicate each Tuesday to a specific suburb to speed up service delivery and cut overgrown grass.

According to Region E manager, Jerome Ogle, the objective is to try to reduce the backlog on a weekly basis. “Each depot in Region E will target areas and try to see what sort of output they can get on a daily basis … We hope to achieve as much as possible over the next quarter.”

Kayakazi Bodlani, Region E parks manager, said Blitz Tuesday was a perfect opportunity for managers to have a team-building session. “It is an exciting initiative that has been started by us and we are looking forward to it over the next six to eight weeks.”

The campaign started on Tuesday, 7 February in Sandringham. The next suburb to have its grass cut is Fourways on Tuesday, 14 February.
