Meet the Mayor during Open Thursdays
Following the example set by Western Cape MEC Alan Winde, Minister of Economic Opportunities in making his office more accessible during First Thursday, the Knysna Executive Mayor, Eleanore Bouw-Spies will now be opening her doors every first Thursday of the month, between 17:00 and 19:30 for Open Thursday.
To ensure access to all, Bouw-Spies will set up office on the ground floor of the Clyde Street Municipal building every first Thursday of each month, and encourages Greater Knysna residents to join her between 17:00 – 19:30 on these days.
“I am looking forward to opening the doors on these days and getting to meet and chat to our residents. Each month’s Open Thursday will be themed and for this first Open Thursday I would like to encourage our young entrepreneurs to come and share their business ideas with us,” said the mayor.
The Mayor’s first Open Thursday is planned for 2 March, Ground Floor, Municipal Building, 5 Clyde Street, Knysna.
“We will have staff members from our Youth Desk and Economic Development (ED) on hand to assist with any questions these young entrepreneurs may have,” concluded Bouw-Spies
