Johannesburg - Johannesburg Mayor Parks Tau has promised to sort out the service delivery problems affecting residents.

"Over R30bn will be spent in the next three years on infrastructure development in Johannesburg," he said on Tuesday at a Johannesburg service delivery summit in Braamfontein.

Tau said the municipality needed to meet its people's infrastructure needs by ensuring a high level of delivery.

Johannesburg had a high level of delivery compared to other municipalities, but rapid growth was creating problems, he said.

"The population figures have grown by 2.1 million since 2001. That means we had a migration of 13%."

Tau said new mechanisms were needed to ensure all residents of the city had access to water, sanitation, and electricity.

"Communities can be partners in the delivering of services. Knowledge of what to do does not always reside with leaders. We need to engage our communities and work with them closely," he said.
