From Malcolm’s Desk – March 2012

SECURITY DISCS:

A reminder that all information on your Security Discs will be erased from our system on 29 February 2012 and it will be necessary to re-program these with Adri from 01 March. Apologies for any inconvenience – however, it is a security measure.

For our Johannesburg (and other out of town) Lessees, you are most welcome to phone us on the Friday you are coming down to the Marina and we will instruct the Security Guards to allow you access to your Mooring. You can then come into the office on Saturday morning (between 08h00-12h00) to sort your access disc out.

Thank you in anticipation for your co-operation and understanding.

ELECTRICITY:

As alluded to in previous Newsletters, please would all owners of electricity boxes note that the costs are going up with effect from 01 March 2012. In other words at the end of March you will see the following new rates reflected on your billing: R1.80 per unit. Those without meters will be charged a flat rate of R180.00 per month.

This is in keeping with the huge increases that the Marina has been carrying in recent years. (Please note that should any non-metered user feel that the charge is too high, you are welcome to have a meter put in on your box but this will be at your own cost. Please liaise with the Marina office, as the installation needs to be done by the Marina electrician – so the meters are all the same).

OIL AND DIESEL SPILLS:

It has come to our attention that there have been numerous oil and diesel spills into the Marina area recently. Please note that it is your responsibility to ensure that oil and diesel from your bilges are not pumped into the bay. This could result in a fine of up to R200,000.00 for pollution! We have already been warned by the authorities because somebody phoned and complained.

FIREARMS:

There was a recent incident where one of the boats on the Marina was involved with firearms. If anyone wants the finer details they are welcome to contact me.

  Till next time,

Let’s keep it clean.

Regards,

Malcolm
