Community Survey

Well done and thank you to the many local residents who took the time to complete and return our Community Survey 2010. We are impressed with the number of surveys returned, double the number required to consider it a reliable indication of the general opinions of the community. The time and thought given to additional comments is also commended. All the data has been entered into the computer and we are now undergoing the process of analysing and interpreting the information received. The results will be published once they have been determined.

Jerramungup Townsite Revitalisation

On 12th August the Revitalisation working group met with representatives from Opus and the playground manufacturers. Work is now underway to select shelter structures and synthetic lawn for the Fun Park and Fitzgerald Biosphere Garden in Roe Park. During the revitalisation of Roe Park a number of sugar gums and other trees will be removed to make way for the improvements. The design concept master plans are on display at the Council office for anyone who wants to view them.

Jerramungup Saleyards

It has come to the Shire’s attention that individuals are cutting down trees and removing fire wood from the bush land at the back of the Jerramungup Saleyards.

All residents are reminded that the entire saleyards site is a reserve under the care, control and management of Council. The damage to trees and the removal of fire wood is therefore an offence under the By-Laws Relating to Reserves and Foreshores.

The maximum penalty if found guilty of an offence under this legislation is $500. The Shire’s Ranger will commence regular patrols of this reserve and issue infringements as required.
