ON 23 AUGUST 2017 AT 19H30

IN ATTENDANCE         :           Anne Brown      (Secretary)

WELCOME & APOLOGIES

The Chairman welcomed all to the meeting.  The apologies were noted.

CHAIRMAN’S REPORT

The Chairman reported that CKN had 7 incidents to date, compared to 35 in total for 2017 last year.  This must be seeing in context as being excellent as according to reports crime in the surrounding areas was almost out of control. 

Many Associations are asking the question “Why is CKN so successful”.  It has been pointed out to them that CKN employs their security provider directly on a 24 hour basis that is dedicated to CKN area only.  This results in a permanent presence and a response time of less than 2 minutes.  All other Associations rely on call outs from a control centre with no guarantee of vehicles available.

The Chairman also mentioned that a number of existing members are struggling to pay the monthly subscription of R300.  He stated that the attitude of CKN was to accommodate all residents and that in certain cases the subscription amount was negotiable as the mission statement of CKN is ‘Safety first”.

DOWRY / SECURITY

An interim bonus was proposed for our dedicated area guards over and above the year- end bonus as their dedication has contributed directly to the fall in our crime stats.
This received the approval of all those present.

Again it was highlighted that CKN Dowry will only respond to households displaying the CKN membership board.  The dedicated cars are paid for by the Association on behalf of its members, for their use only (emergencies excepted!).

Members are encouraged to make use of these cars for escorting them from their CKN entry point to their homes.  Members can ring for a car to meet them at an entrance point and be escorted.

FINANCE

Overdue subscriptions are being successfully expedited.  Todate the cash flow remains positive.

CCTV CAMERAS

The positioning of additional cameras is currently on hold pending the completion of the fibre cable installation as we have been informed that we may have up to 28 connection points made available to us.

MEMBERSHIP

The membership is increasing with new residents to the area joining as well as existing residents changing their service provider to Dowry.

SAFETY

The Chairman advises that all households should posses a large ‘9kg’ fire extinguisher as the local Fire services are totally under equipped to provide the service required in the event of a fire.  Some fire trucks being dispatched from 20/25 kms away.

GENERAL

  • CKN 20th Birthday / Spring Market

It was decided that a braai be held in the Kroton St park on the 23rd September.  This will be held between 1pm to 3pm.  Entertainment and stalls to be arranged if required.

Subsequent to this meeting, the date has been changed to 7 October.

  • Halloween

This annual event will take place again this year and all residents are encouraged to participate, particularly those with young children.

  • Park

It has been noticed that the park is being used as a ‘pub’ with large quantities of empty beer, wine and spirit bottles littering certain areas.  Dowry is to be requested to keep an eye out and report any such gatherings.

  • CKN Facebook

It was recommended that this be closed due to non usage.

CHAIRMAN’S CLOSING STATEMENT

There being no further issues to discuss, the Chairman thanked the attendees and declared the meeting closed.

The date and venue of the next meeting will be advised.
