INFORMATION : Municipal issues
Greenside receives municipal services from the City of Johannesburg (COJ) and we are part of Region B. Greenside falls into Ward 87 and our current ward councillor is Bridget Steer.

If there is an issue of concern with regards any services the first step is to report the issue to the relevant authority. COJ relies on its residents to log service delivery failures so that it may have the opportunity to attend to them. If issues are not logged on the City’s service delivery systems, the entities may be unaware of the breakdowns. You must log your complaints with the correct COJ department before contacting your local ward councillor to escalate the matter.
