Denmark’s new community radio station is asking to lease a portion of Shire land to house a back up generator.

The land is just behind and existing power pole and metre box in the nature strip of the Denmark Community Resource Centre car park.

The generator is to sit on a 4.2m x 3m concrete pad.

Shire Governance coordinator Claire Thompson has written to Councillors saying the location had been chosen for its close proximity to the meter box.

“Placing it further away would require significant works and cost (digging up carpark, cabling etc.),” she wrote.

““The generator will provide a permanent backup power source for the entire Morgan Richards Community Centre, including Denmark FM. “

“The generator will provide a permanent backup power source for the entire Morgan Richards Community Centre (the building occupied by the DCRC), including Denmark FM.

“The DCRC have also considered that in an emergency situation the backup power source at the facility could be beneficial for the continuation of community services.”

She recommended screening vegetation be planted around the generator after was installed.

The new Denmark Shire Council is due to consider the lease when it sits this Tuesday, October 19.
