Elector Representation Review
An elector representation review gives councils and their community the opportunity to examine their present composition and structure and allows the opportunity to plan and implement changes that will better reflect the future requirements of their community. Council prepared a paper examining the options available for the composition of Council which closed on 3 March 2017. Council will now consider this feedback and prepare a Representation Review Report for further community consultation.
Fire Danger Season
Tulka S Bend
Following an inability to resolve a number of contractual issues, the Council has taken back possession of the site. Council staff are repairing the road surface and reinstating traffic management signage. Due to the protracted negotiations and the time of year, any further work on site other than maintaining the road surface will be unlikely until late or early April. Council will be working with the funding agencies (Motor Accident Commission and DPTI) to bring this project to a conclusion as soon as practicable in 2017. We apologise for the inconvenience.
Flinders Highway Reconstruction
Contractors commenced road works in late October 2016. Flinders Highway will be closed to traffic between Cockatoo Road and Winters Hill Drive. Detours will be via Panoramic Drive. If you have any queries regarding the road closure please contact Downer's Project Manager - Donna Gray 0488 932 879. Expected completion of this project is early to mid April 2017.
