Keep up to date with what the Town is doing in response to the novel coronavirus situation.
The Town enjoyed the easing of restrictions via Phase 3 of the COVID-19 WA Roadmap to Recovery. And, with this mild June weather, Saturday 6 June was perfect for playing in the park, beach or river front. Indulge in coffee or a meal or visit a local gallery. This will also help stimulate our local economy. Please remember to stay safe and sanitise hands, practice physical distancing and take healthy hygiene steps. For details of a particular business or service, please contact them directly. The Town has re-opened some outdoor facilities and is progressively working towards reopening recreational facilities. The Town has implemented COVID Safety plans to facilitate these re-openings and are supporting our community and sporting clubs as they work towards compliance with the WA restriction requirement. Town-owned toilet facilities have hygiene signage and are stocked with liquid hand soap and paper towels. BBQ facilities are scheduled to be professionally cleaned on Thursday 11 June, so you can enjoy a BBQ in the weeks to come. For any queries regarding the Town’s services and facilities, please call 9383 6600.
The Town's administration office is again open from Monday to Friday 8:30am-4:30pm. All services are back to normal. including planning and building applications, waste, rates, dog & cat registrations, verge valet, engineering, trees and streetscapes. Payments can also be made at the office, although contactless payments are preferred.
"Social distancing protocols will be in place including a safety screen to protect staff and maintain appropriate distancing, sanitiser on the counter, and a regular daily cleaning routine," says Senior Human Resources and Safety Advisor, Hannah Young.
If queries can be dealt with over the phone this would be the preferred method.
"However, the council is open to the public and available to provide customer service safely," says Hannah.
The Town invites comments from residents and all other stakeholders about the future of the jetty located at Green Place Reserve, Chidley Way in the Town.
The Green Place jetty was constructed in 1987. It is an ageing asset that has sustained considerable and costly damage over the past six years due to the deterioration of piling from natural (river) and artificial (boating vessels) factors. In 2019 five piles were found to have significantly deteriorated and need to be replaced or reconstructed. As it was unsafe, the jetty was closed until repair works could be completed. In the 2019-20 Budget, Council allocated $9,500 for repairs of the Green Place jetty. The Town sought quotes for the repair works; only one quote was received at a cost that significantly exceeded the budget allocation. The jetty is still closed.
The Town has three public access jetties. Two jetties are owned by The Town – at Green Place reserve, and at Minim Cove (maintained by Octennial Holdings). The third jetty at Mosman Bay is owned and maintained by the Department of Transport. The Green Place jetty is either accessed via the river or Green Place reserve; this reserve is not under the control of the Town and is managed by the Department of Planning. Costs for maintaining and replacement of the two Town-owned jetties are considerable.
At its February OCM, Council agreed to undertake community engagement to help it decide the future options for the Green Place jetty. Findings will be provided to Council for consideration as part of the 2020/21 Budget process.
